Re-review, because I can. 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden color. The head is a finger high, with a white shade. It's very creamy for the style, even if retention isn't quite the best.

S: I'm just not as impressed with the nose as I used to be. Primarily, I'm getting subtle hints of pine, earth, and cracker. Maybe this batch falls a bit short compared to the others? It definitely doesn't smell bad - it just doesn't smell like much of anything.

T: Luckily, it tastes mostly the same. The hops here are mostly piny and herbaceous, but there are subtle tones of mango and melon lying throughout. There are also nice hints of sweetish malt - they never obstruct, they just blend with the hoppiness brilliantly. Still one of the most enjoyable 'balanced' IPAs on the market.

M: It's actually not an light or bone dry beer, but wow is it crisp. Crisp and refreshing. As far as 7.5% IPAs go, this drinks with unbridled effortlessness. Carbonation isn't overdone, either.

O: It's just like a more lightly malted Nugget Nectar. At times when I drink it, I don't think it's the same beer as I remembered; but after a few more sips, I go "this is EXACTLY what I remembered it to be". I really wish the aroma had more punch, however. But who cares? This is one of those beers where one isn't enough.
