Firstly, thanks to BA flyingbison for the trade – great transaction.
Lots of hype about this beer so I have been keen to try it for some time. 12 oz bottle with the # 7398 printed on the rear label.
Chill-haze effect on the peach colored pour with a nice fluffy head. Unfortunately the head is lost quickly and the lacing is almost non-existent – a shame and I’m slightly disappointed for such a great *tasting* beer.
Aroma is very good with a sweet, and more importantly a balanced hop profile coming through strong. As in all good brews the taste reflects that with some super sweet hop notes. Some sugared grapefruit holds throughout the each mouthful with a lovely mild, lingering bitterness.
Drinkability is high. A very, very nice American IPA with a lot of credibility and taste.
