On tap at my local watering hole in a shaker pint.
A- Bright golden with a 1 finger white head that sticks around and leaves nice lacing.
S- Awesome! Bright pine, grapefruit bouquet of hops. Not much malt to this one.
T- Phenomenal! Big pine hops up front with some grapefruit. Well balanced with some light caramel tones through the drink and finishes with a lasting bitterness. Alcohol is nearly non-existent.
M- Spot on. Nice carbonation for the style leaves the body light-medium. Very clean and fresh.
O- I have had PtE many times in the bottle, on tap, and at the brewery. It never dissapoints and is really the touchstone that I compare all DIPAs to. My favorite beer for a reason.
Serving type: on-tap
