On tap at Toronado, SF, CA
Poured with 1/2inch of head, lots of sticky lace. Orange-red colour with mild carbonation. Aroma is oily, sticky, resiny, and piney with a slight floral nicety as well. Any malt is completely overpowered.
In the flavour, the balance definitely leans towards the hops. Grapefruit citric acidity becomes extremely piney with a lot of aniseed and fennel backed up by a light crackery malt and just a little bit of vanilla as well. This beer bites real hard. Medium carbonation, sticky as hell, Dry, Dry, Dry. Very drinkable but dosen't pretend to be balanced, it's just a hop bomb. An exceptionally flavoured IPA though.
Serving type: on-tap
