Hop bomb. Poured slightly chilled with gigantic, foamy, frothy, cream-colored head that lasts all the way down and lots of clingy lace. Color is a nice, clear amber with loads of bubble trails. Aroma is a blend of hop, barnyard, yeast, malt. Flavor is totally dominated by hop; very bitter with a little malt coming at the end. Carbonation is ok, but body is confused by the intense bitter. Thank goodness for that smidgen of malt. Finish is like flavor, super long, and off flavors courtesy of hop. Also a little boozy.

It pours out a golden orange body, with dark hues in the core of the body. A dirty-white head sits on top, which is frothy at first, and then settles out to a compact covering.

The nose is big on hop aromas: grapefruit, floral, peach, and pine needles. There’s a dash of mint in there as well. The malt profile is earthy and grainy, with dark bread tones.

Bready malts are tasted first, with a graininess to the flavor. An oily, resinous hop flavor builds, and then more hop flavors come across. Floral, with grapefruit and pine needles. Again, a slight mintiness is there. A moderate hopping builds on the finish, with a dry, piney flavor lingering, and a hint of spice.

Great hop flavors without a heavy-handed bitterness make this an easy drinking IPA.
