On tap at Prodigal Son, poured into Imperial Pint glass, 4.24.2010.

Hazy light amber body, one finger white head, medium dissipation with some lacing. Floral hop notes dominate the nose balanced by caramel malt. Taste is hop forward, not bitter, due to exclusive use of Crystal hops which allow the malt bill to shine through. Medium mouthfeel, good effervescence. Quite drinkable, though it tasted a bit boozy I don't think the ABV was that high. The brewer's take on a traditional English IPA, looking forward to his NW IPA effort. Worth a try.
