Thanks to mater for supplying this as an extra.
A - Poured into a pint glass it produces a 1/2 inch of creamy white head. The retention is pretty good and it leaves copious lacing. The beer is a hazy golden-orange with visible carbonation.
S - I got a large amount of grapefruit with citrus and caramel showing up in lesser amounts. It's got the right components for a great aroma, but it's somewhat muted. A little more of the aroma comes out as it warms, but it's not as aromatic as some other IPAs.
M - Medium in body with moderate carbonation. It has a resinous feel, yet still has some creaminess.
T - This beer begins with the malts, showcasing breadiness followed by smooth caramel flavors. The hops quickly jump in first providing light hints of citrus and then a full on grapefruit and pine flavor. It's got a nice medium bitterness in the finish with some alcohol warming effects as it goes down.
One hoppy delicious beer. Despite the aroma not being as potent as I would like, it does a great job in the taste and mouthfeel departments. I'd certainly go for this again if it were available.
