ST: Bottle poured into a glass

A: Medium cloudy amber; very light head and good lacing

S: Definitely get a woody aroma; get a great fresh hop aroma; little grassy notes

T: Strong bitter flavor with a woodiness to it; get a good yeast/bready flavor; Light and dry finish

MF: Body is light on the palate; dry hop flavor sticks to tongue after finish

O: Stellar beer; grab one if you see one. I could drink this one year round, unfortunately it is only available seasonally.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a coppery color and a slightly hazy consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy head and pretty good lacing.

S: Smelled of pine, hops, and sweet kind of malt.

T: Tasted mainly of hops (somewhat unusual for the style), a nice malty backbone, pine, and some citrus. A solid, decent flavor.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a slightly slick finish. Light-bodied.

D: A well made, drinkable APA.

Copper colored, nice head on this one. Aromatic hops in the nose. Assertively hoppy taste bordering on the overly bitter, nice pine notes in there. Malt backs things up, booze is well hidden. Finish is long and lingering but stops just short of overstaying its welcome for me. I liked this one, and as another reviewer said, the price is right too. Not my top choice in the IPA dept. but certainly a quality beer. Prefer a little more subtlety and balance myself..too each his own though.
