32oz growler, filled earlier today @ The Growler Run.
into a SN IPA Glass.

Pours a burnt orange with a foamy, off white head and spotty lacing.

Citrusy, resiny hops, light boozy notes from the alcohol in the taste.

A decent DIPA. Well done, but lacking anything particularly memorable about it.

Had this on tap at Uber Tavern Seattle. Funny thing...this a wallop of a beer. Big, bright, huge aroma and flavor...but it was enjoyed as a session beer Yep...that's right. A real quaffer.
It started with the mouth feel. There was a huge flavor profile, but the very smooth drinkable carbonation melded with a full malt backbone...well, let's say it was a rich, satisfying drink. Granted, sitting in Uber with the fire pit and a cool, rainy night outside...it was a nice for contemplation and sipping. But in fact I was on Beer Safari with 3 bros, and everything was upbeat and let's do more, more, more...
the appearance is a rich yellow/amber with a smooth head, followed by righteous lacing. Aroma is full hoppy-ness, fresh and bright. Flavor rolls with citrus, slight mellow caramel, maybe a touch of banana. The mouth feel is sinful. Sinful! Soft, luxuriant...inviting....
Damn, I'm poppin down a full octane beer, but it seems like I'm sippin on a perfectly poured Brit Pale Ale.
Let's face it... there are many, many excellent IPAs...but not unlike PTY, this one stands out for the drinkability above and beyond the great flavor.
Hope you're lucky enough to have one poured on tap for you>
