I like this beer chiefly because it represents the American style of IPA’s so very well.
Really quite striking clarity, and a seriously light copper color. Big frothy head soon pulls back to give tons of lacing and a creamy surface.
There is a hop nose that sits between citrus and pine. This is quickly followed by an amazing marriage of hops, sweetness and metallic twang in the taste.
It has a huge bitter character without really being bitter (if that makes any sense). I guess what we are talking about is a huge hop presence that has excellent malt balance to bring it all into line.
Super beer, with, for me, a limited drinkability, but it is a classical American version of an IPA.
