Poured from a bottle no date found

A
Aggressive pour gives a one to two finger head that dissipates quickly leaving a foamy lacing

S
Head is stuffed up so I will refrain from comment

T
Nice side of tongue bite with a strong IPA after taste. But an overall smooth well balanced drink. As others have commented, not too bitter, especially for a dry hopped beer.

M
Good feel.

O
I rate this one high. This beer does not overwhelm, just very drinkable. A long lasting after taste has just enough bite. Will buy again when looking for an IPA.

Bottle to HFS sniffer

A: dark golden honey colored but not quite amber colored with a small quite to tan head that goes away quickly with almost not lacing. It is cloudy but not mirky pretty well done for an IPA

S: Some hop aroma but not that much a little malt too but there is not much smell to this beer. No bottle date so idk how fresh it is.

T: Nice balanced hop taste there is basically no bitterness and a malt presence but the hops remain dominant not a whole lot stands out but very drinkable while being tasty

M: it is nice and light with a little bit of crispness it is quite thin and watery though but that contributes to its drinkability as the alcohol is completely unnoticeable

O: This isn't the best ipa but its a real solid go to with a high abv and extremely drinkable I really like it and its definitely worth a try but like I said won't blow you away
