12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Poured a golden yellow with a good 2 fingers worth of head that settles to a thin layer with great lacing from start to finish.

S: I'm getting a strong pine hops with a touch of malt and a little spice.

T: Well it is hops from start to finish.. Straight up pine hops upfront then a light malt and spice mid palette. The finish is right on par with a IPA.. bitter.

M: Lighter bodied than I was expecting.

O: I'm not a big IPA guy but this was not bad at all.... I love the smell, taste was not bad but the mouthfeel was a thinner than most of the IPA's I've had.

A - Pours a golden amber with an orange tint. Two fingers of white fluffy head that clings and laces after every drink. Superb Retention throughout.

S - Citrus hops, zest, resinous, fruity, oak, malts, grains.

T - Hop forward - citrusy, fruity, resinous, toasted grains, malts. Well balanced. Drinks smooth and finishes clean. Really a nice mouth feel to this.

O - This is a no doubter home run IPA. This could be a go to IPA for me if it were readily available in Michigan. Good depth with many different nuances.

Notes - Thanks to my wife for picking these up at Binny's in Schaumberg while at a PA conference.
