Ah Sea Hag. I love you.

Poured from a can into a snifter. Giggle!

A. Hazy orange, a lovely light copper. Fairly standard appearance amongst top tier IPAs. White head pours into a fluffy foam, but fades fast into a faint cap(shoot, no more f's). Laces decently.

S. Center stage. You can detect just enough sweetness in there that you know its made of barley, but then it's overridden by all sorts of good hop aromas. Its good.

T. If you're still reading, you get the point. Its good. Flavor is exactly what the aroma fortells. A balanced yet exceedingly hoppy blessing on the palate. Pine, grass, dank.

F. Nailed it. Medium to medium/thick feel that coats the tongue and leaves the bitterness playing with your tastebuds, all the while light enough to quaff away.

O. This is your standard IPA. By standard I mean the thing you go to when you want delicious, and a metric to weigh all others by. This has fast become a favorite of mine. In case you can't tell.
