poured into a pilsner glass at a restaurant

a: opaque and orange, white head with moderate retention and lacing.

s: floral, pine, nice but nothing special

t: medium hops, pleasing bitterness, good balance, malt mackbone, solid.

m: a little high on carbonation and a tad thin. a little dry.

o: not a bad offering, happy to drink this, wouldn't buy it over other offerings though, doesn't separate much from the pack.

A: Amber, slight cloudiness, moderate carbonation 2 finger creamy white head. Nice jagged but thin lacing.

S: Spicy hops, malt and candy, red pepper, pine, a little tropical fruit like pineapple. Expecting a double ipa from the scent.

T: All of the above minus the candy and sweetness I was initially expecting. There is a slight sweet, but it is so sublte it almost goes unnoticed.

M: Medium body, somewhat resinous, medium high carbonation.

O: I like it better than I was expecting, as it has an almost savoury, woodsy kind of taste that would pair well with venison, bbq meats, etc. Exceeded my expectations. Perhaps my new favourite American IPA. It shows off the hops well without overdoing them as some do, and leaves your palate with a clean finnish.
