Route 113 India Pale Ale

12 oz can.
Very interesting beer.
The pour gives an amazingly dark, copper color with superb clarity. The copper color is pronounced and quite dark for the style. Nice head, decent lace, good looker.
There is a real, significant bitterness in the nose and initial tastes, but these change to a quite obvious, herbal, earthy, light spiced hop note. It feels quite organic.
The beer lacks any real dry character (that I was expecting), but still delivers a firm finish. Hints of grapefruit are also present.
All in all absolutely delighted.
