Bottled 11 days ago.
A. Pour yielded 1.5 fingers of frothy head. Clear golden amber in color. Nice lacing and head retention. A slow swirl rebuilds the head nicely. 4.75
S. Lots of hops. Malt is also noticeable. it smells well balanced. 4.5
T. Orange Zest and Pine. The malt is present as well. This is a very well balanced IPA; the hops are in your face though not overbearing. Finish is not sweet nor too bitter. 4.75
M. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Leaves a sticky feeling in your mouth with a semi-dry finish 4.75
O. I really enjoy PTE and have had it several times now. I can say that it doesn't age gracefully and is best drank as fresh as possible. Very well balanced and delicious. I would drink it all the time if it was local
