The heavens opened and filled my pint glass on glorious tap.
A - Clear honey amber with 2 finger white head with good head retention and excellent lacing.
S - A hops orchestra plays notes of pine predominately with grapefruit, nectarine, lemon, with a bit of malty bread and just a hint of booze.
T - This journey treks back and forth through the palate starting with a bold grassy pine and a tiny sweet at the front and sides of the palate then off to a plethora of hops from floral, herbal, and citrus with mainly pine and grapefruit notes. More apple fruit to follow with a final game winning shot of smooth dry bitter finish with a touch of fiery alcohol.
M - Full body, moderate carbonation, smooth most the way with a chewy, dry finish.
O - One of the finest bottled IPAs ever and among my favorite brews. Put this one on my death-row last meal if we can't get the Younger.
Serving type: on-tap
