-spiegelau ipa glass.

A: Dark orange medium haze, with a rapid rate of effervesce. Thick and frothy light beige head is one inch and steady on the hold. Thick sheet coating of lace has a good coverage rate.

S: Citrusy sweet malt aroma, fresh pine juice, settles to a light pine dry hop finish. Lightly dry flowery citrus grind with a decent awareness and average retention.

T: Flavor was sharp wet with citrusy-grapefruit mingling against a sweetly toasted malt backing. Dry grapefruit flower hops follow up with a touch of toasted tropical fruitiness, piney cream hops. Dry bittering finish with a good dose of knock-out hops, bittering, good strength, nice lingering duration.

M: Mouthful leans towards the lighter side of medium, warming hop juice of citrusy-pine with some toasted malt on the inner cheeks provides a nice feel.

O: Overall nice balance of malt and hops, reminds me of a dfh 90 how it drinks and in terms of balance, warming hop juiciness, floral hops, and abv. Warming citrusy-pine juice is soothing making for an enjoyable drink.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, resin, hint of pine, sweet malt, slight alcohol, hint of wood, and a hint of dark citrus. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is a noticeable bitterness. Tastes of alcohol, resin, hops, slight liquor, hint of wood, sweet malt, and slight citrus hops. Overall, good appearance, good aroma, good complexity, blend is off though which hurts the body.

Wow. Surprised by this one. I really liked it. Good mix of hoppy fruit and malt. Definitely will have again.
