look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served from a Pony Keg on (29.6.09)

A - Clear, with Golden tinge to the Straw hue (SRM 3.5). Mild carbonation creates a constant stream of bubbles to the top of the squat Tulip-like glass. The slightly more than finger-thick white head appears like bubbles that leaves resinous spider webs on the side of the glass after subsiding.

S - Hops of pine, with a balance toasty caramel malt mix together in a very balanced way. The splash of citrus (orange) come through on the nose as well, enhancing the beautiful bouquet.

T/M/D - Bitter grapefruit linger mildly on the palate for lengthy periods of time. The biscuity-sweet caramel balances out the hops nicely, thought to style, the hops remain center-stage. A kiss of alcohol comes through, but remains cloaked by all else. The hops fatigue the palate over time, though the alcohol doesn't seem to alter the mind too much, which begs for many more!

C - This is a delightful little beer with plenty to be enjoyed! Though west coast hop varieties were utilized, this is by no means an example of the extreme "Hop Bombs" being brewed currently by most breweries in the western US. Because of this, and the fact that the malts are allowed to come through in an elegant way, I would classify this as more of an American English IPA, than an American IPA.

Prost!
