Poured from a can dated 12/08 into an imperial pint glass.
A - Mahogany in color, translucent, and carbonated well, a thin cap covers in off white style.
S - A light roast malt base, a wonderful piney, element. the slightest hint of papaya, and grapefruit.
T - Initial bitterness fades quickly, a smooth sweet malt backbone supports the rest of the experience.
M - Medium in body, a quick roll across the palate, leaves a delicate trace. Finish is slightly sweet.
O - A well crafted and executed IPA .
Cheers all

Green Head IPA is quite assertive in terms of both malt and hop flavor. Poured from a can into a pint glass this brew highlights a slightly hazy orange hue and a fluffy white head. The hop flavor to me is more on the pink grapefruit end of things as opposed to, say, piney or herbal. The malt sweetness is more pronounced than a lot of other IPAs. Mouthfeel is creamy and slightly sticky, with thick white lacing remaining long after this is done. This is a fine, well-crafted, fresh-tasting ale that I especially enjoy with spicy foods (yellow Thai curry and chili with jalapenos for example).
