Served in a Chalice:

Appearance: This is one of my favorite American IPAs.Poured a beautiful red/orange tint.Slightly cloudy with lots of cascading to create a nice creamy tan head.Lots of beading inside and a lacing that doesn't quit.

Smell: The aroma of hops and untainted malts dominate this IPA .A sweet nectar and some pines play a role as well.Not much alcohol in the nose but just enough to say "hello,i'm alcohol".

Taste: Fantastic flavors bursting in my mouth like no other.Citrusy and piney hops are definitely there,but caressed with a nicely sweetened malt that keeps you coming for more.A sour apple, candied oranges, and a not too potent alcohol mingle themselves in this fine brew.

Mouthfeel: This silky, smooth liquid brushes by my tongue with such elegance,I almost dont even notice the sweet bubbley finish.This beer also creates a thin film in my mouth that tastes like everything ive described for you so far.

Drinkability: I know,I could devour many bottles of this in one session.Its definitely on "Cheers2Beers" must try list and Not a bad price for a most profound beer of this magnitude.Brew on,Victory!

Cheers2Beers

Ya know how redheads are either "hot as hell" or well ya know a "train wreck". Well this is one "hot" devil. Bright bubbles, hypnotic in its bitterness. The aftertaste has addictive overtones of flowers, perfume, and a high heel against the backside. God I love the Devil out of this beauty. Sorry about the description, but this is a top ten beer on the wish list..
