Serving: Can into pint
Served: 21 April 2014

Appearance: Deep golden yellow with a slight copperish tint at times. Pours with a one finger head that sticks around for a good while and diminishes to a light sheen of bubbles on the top. Incredible lacing on the glass.

Smell: WOW. You open the can and before you even get it poured into a glass you're already assaulted by massive floral hop notes. After pouring it into a glass the nose is dominated by a massive bouquet of floral hoppiness with a noticeable sweetness associated with it. Smells very clean and very intense- nearly IPA like.

Taste: Magnificent taste. A bit more assertive in hoppiness than SNPA and just a bit less so than Zombie Dust. The massive aroma hops don't translate as powerfully in the taste, but the body of the beer is nonetheless dominated by floral hoppiness. The malt backbone provides nice depth and body. The beer finishes drier than I was expecting from an APA.

Mouthfeel: Great effervescent carbonation, refreshing.

Overall: An incredible APA. Easily one of my top 3 overall. The incredible aroma and flavor are rounded out by a supreme drinkability. At 5.2% it won't knock you out, and I could easily drink three of these without feeling fatigued in both sobriety and palate. A fantastic APA that I highly recommend everyone try. Will be a go-to offering for me whenever I'm home in IL.
