Version XXV: Strata

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves good lacing

S: Citrus and herbal hops up front along with a light bready maltiness

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the citrus and herbal hop notes and then picks up a light bready malt that balances the bitterness nicely. Finishes with lingering herbal hop notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly dry

O: A nice IPA that highlights the strata hops nicely. Herbal and dank while also citrusy. Easy to drink. Good luck finding this, though

This beer pours a very hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger, dense, foamy white head. Retention is above average and there is lots of sticky lacing left on the glass.

Smell is pretty basic. Citrus, pine and some malt sweetness. Nothing special.

Taste is very west coast style. Very bitter pine and citrus pith with a touch of mango and sweetness.

Feel is medium and slick with moderate carbonation. Prickly from the bitterness.

Overall this beer is pretty good. Well below the standard that The Alchemist have set for themselves though.

Hazy gold pour, fair sized head, loads of lace. Aroma is tropical fruit, pine, somewhat dank. Pineapple up front, pine resin, weed, fairly sweet finish. Medium body. Enjoyed it and curious to see how this one evolves with future cannings.
