12oz bottle served in a pint glass
Bright coppery orange in the glass with a one finger off white head of tiny bubbles that throw a lot of lace during the session. This is all IPA in the nose, the hop aromas are almost sticky. The hops here run the full gamut from citrus to floral and herbal and everything in between. In the taste the hops of course are the focus. The citrus flavors dominate with a plenty of bitterness in there as well. There is still a considerable malt base in this beer, enough to balance the hops keeping it from running away and becoming difficult to drink. Speaking of which this is a very nice drinking IPA. The finish is just a touch sweet with a long lasting bitterness that sits on the tongue until you take the next sip. Overall a very good IPA good for a session but complex enough to drink slow and enjoy.
