Hops Infusion

12oz bottle purchased in Greensboro, NC, USA as a single – Total Wine. Non-descript code toward the bottom of bottle 4123061070221. Poured in to the 16oz shaker pint.
Aggressive pour leads to a nice half-inch head (pillow like) and some good, well defined lace. A light copper colored body with very slight haze. Some mild carbonation.
Nose certainly does not reflect much hoppiness. Clean and simple, a nice IPA and a welcome change of pace from the massive hop profiles that STILL seem to be en vogue and hanging on Stateside. Some malt sweetness up front and a simple, midly bitter hop finish.
Name is a bit misleading, as I was led to believe this was going to be another ridiculous US hop bomb, but I was pleasantly surpised at the simplicity and balance of this beer. Good, eveyday drinking methinks.
