Bottle, Wk 3/February, into Sam Adams sensory glass.

Pours clear, brilliant copper, with a persistent one-finger of creamy off-white head, and epic lacing. Really, the very definition of a great looking IPA. Another finger or two on the initial pour and this is a perfect 5.

Nose is piny, a bit grassy, light underlying citrus rind. Dank, as always.

Taste follows my impression of several earlier hop projects in a lot of ways. This one is a little more intensely pungent, as the rindy, piny, grassy character really latches on to the pungency and doesn't let go. A bit on the bitter side, this is (and really, always has been) an IPA that is really built around the earlier hop additions. I tend to prefer mine more late-boil focused and hopbursted, but that's just me. Still, there's a smoothness to this one that's undeniable - light, dry, bready malt underneath, with loads of dry, grassy, piny, even earthy hops layered on top. Nice beer.

Mouthfeel is well done - creamy, dry, long finish is sustained by a moderate, never-too-heavy bitterness.

Drinkability is quite good also. Bitterness never overwhelms, well-balanced. A bit on the pungent side, yes, but no one ever accused the Hop Project series of being a west-coast style IPA.

Purchased in Laurel MS.
Pours a cloudy copper color with a white head that has average head retention.
Citrus hops jump out. There is some spicy hops as well.
Description on the bottle says they take Pale, Munich and Caramel malts and overwhelm with their hops. They do, because I don't get much on the malt side in the aroma, and get a little of it on the tongue that help nicely soften the hops and add some balance.
I liked it.
