A-I really don't think you can get any better than this beautiful alure of this gorgeous IPA. It pours a clear, deep golden color with a hint of amber.It boasts a large off white head that has excellent retention and strong, luscious lacing all the way down the glass. It's a looker for sure.
S-Huge aroma of scrumptious pine hops finds it's way to my nose first, then the slight sweetness of both pale and caramel malts come next and quite underneath, but not hidden. The nose also is very floral as well as piney. Very nice. I don't think the aroma could be improved any either. So far this is a winner. Very impressive
T-And the flavor has a HUGE hop character as well. Pine first, then slightly floral and a bit sweet caramel in the finish. Of coarse there is a big, bold bitterness that is very clean and refreshing that makes me want to drink more and more of this wonderful IPA.
M-This had a full, creamy body that coates the mouth well and a wee tad bit of dryness in the finish. Perfect!
D-I could slowly session this all night long and be very happy. Please, if you haden't had this IPA yet, you need to go and find it and buy it. This is what an IPA should be like. It's very rare that I give a perfect score on any given beer, but this one deserves it, for real. Very impressed indeed.
