Harpoon IPA
12 oz bottle
Best before: 9/15/13

A: Pours a crystal clear, light golden amber, with 2.5 fingers width of sea foam white colored head. Lots of carbonation bubbles can be seen rising towards the top of the glass. Head has excellent retention and leaves tons of fine honeycomb lacing.

S: Malty, almost smokey, a bit of booze. Hop characters are pine, soap, and citrus rind.

T: An interesting combination or citrusy orange, sweet malts, and an almost smokey character. Not really the characters I look for in an IPA, but a very tasty beer.

M/D: Full body, moderate carbonation, drinkability is fair.

O: Pretty good beer. Drinks much more like an English IPA than an American IPA, but enjoyable and above average.
