Notes / Commercial Description:
What makes a great leader? First of all a perfectly balanced blend of qualities; the ability to stand out - be authoritative without overpowering. Show courage and endurance - you will lead the way and set standards. Very important; be appealing and refreshing to the people. This stereotypical portrait applies whether referring to politics, religion or maybe even this outstanding IPA.

Greenish hued gold for the color. A bit of a chill haze. Moderate head but it leaves several large spots on the glass.

More earthy nose than most IPAs. I detect some cream as well. What is missing, though, is a strong floral hop presence. Rather pedestrian for the style.

The flavor is beautifully balanced, especially for the style. Here, the hop is more pronounced, but the malt base is solid. The aftertaste is neutrally bitter but not biting. The aftertaste is long lasting and more balanced than most IPAs. Highly carbonated, but with an average level of body. Overall, an easy-to-drink IPA with interesting notes throughout the tasting.

330ml bottle

L - orange/brown, generally clear with very fine suspended particles, pours an off-white 1cm frothy head

S - freshly cut grass, tart fruits (grapefruit), and some stone fruit (apricot)

T - sweet malts, some honey, very fruity mid way through (passionfruit, apricots). Moderate bitterness towards the finish, fairly clean.

M - chewy in the middle, dry finish, well carbonated, alcohol is relatively muted.

O - reasonable, bitterness isn't the strongest for an american IPA, but nice enough. Why do scandanavian beers cost so much though???
