Thanks to Another6Pack for hooking me up with this one! 12 oz bottle with something printed on the label that I can't make out, might be a freshness date. Poured into my goblet.
Appearance: Slightly hazy orange golden with a nice rocky white head that did not settle quickly. Leaves nice looking lacing.
Smell: Dank pine and citrus (grapefruit) that mask a toasted malt profile.
Taste: Wow that is a bitter IPA. The hops take front and center here. I actually would like a little more maltiness to back this one up. The pine/grassy hops totally are out of balance. If you were to balance this one out, it would be like any other beer, and balance is not what they were going for here. So I cannot fault the brewers at all.
Mouthfeel: A silky mouthfeel with carbonation on the higher side. The flavor coats the mouth thoroughly.
Drinkability: This is one I would like to have again, but I could only have one in a session because of the intense bitterness.
Serving type: bottle
