510ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottled 01/25/13.
A - Large rocky white head. Flawless clarity to the golden beer. Left a good amount of lacing.
S - Big snap of balanced citrus to pine. Catty. More floral notes as it warms. Mild biscuit malt in the background.
T - Malt comes across with a darker presence than the color would lend me to believe. Hop flavor is more pine here and really dank/resinous. Bitterness is medium to high and is there early and consistent throughout. Finishes bone-dry and leaves a lasting resinous hop flavor.
M - Dry-dry-dry, just above medium body, moderate to light-moderate carbonation.
O - Great aroma and a beautiful appearance. This beer is deceiving in that it drinks like a regular IPA but in actuality is pretty hefty. Great mouthfeel and quite drinkable. I proud to have finally tracked down the king of IPAs.
