(bottled 071814 - poured into a tulip pint)

A: filtered-clear, bright golden-yellow liquid... two-finger tall, yellowish-white foam... thick, spongy-sudsy build... as nice as the head looks at first, it collapses fairly swiftly and fails to leave much lace

S: lightly-spicy lemon, piney hop resins with a faint background flame of booze... familiar hop aromas that, coincidentally, seem to often accompany lighter-colored IPAs... the citrus be concentrated, however, a bit of light caramel malt pokes through... altogether, invitingly vibrant and suggestively sweetish

T: lemon-tart coated cereal grain... almost an "imperial" Czech pils-like, malty and floral mid point... somewhat herbal finish with a very slight doughy yeast tang in the aftertaste...

M: super-duper foamy-soft flow - at first, it masks an initial hop/alcohol prick that eventually becomes more of a jump-in-the-pool, refreshing, zesty, (fiery) flash that glows long through the finish... very soft and blanket-y (as in flattened)... dry, however, leaving mellow residual streaks of plant syrup

O: the fermentation characteristics from the yeast seem to come through more so than the lion's share of IPAs querfed in my time... the hops flow in a low-voltage electric current - bitter, stingy, and citrusy - so it doesn't knock you over the head - provided you eat well, you could easily knock back 3-4 of these over an evening hanging outside or at a bar, watching the game of the hour
