To top it all off, I got a great pour, in a clean glass, and in a kick ass restaurant.

The color and consistency were perfect, golden and attractive. Nothing about it looked weak. It owned the glass.

Same story with smell and taste, which are more or less the same thing in my book. Hoppy and wonderfully bitter, the tastes were complex, pronounced and left nothing to be desired. Every tastebud and nosebud were hit, slain, in fact.

MF: fully present, ideal carbonation, perfect.

Granted, IPAs with a profile like this one aren't for everyone. Correction, they ARE for everyone that visit this site or even gives a hoot. In light of that, I could drink this one all week.

All in all, nothing was wrong with this one, and I loved it. Delicious.
