This is a very pretty IPA. As you drink it, a foam residue of your progress is recorded on the side of the glass. An entire hop farm of pine, resin, wood and grapefruit hop aromas slowly arrive as the beer warms. There is some eventual grassiness, however the “hay” is more of a bonus than an annoyance. The flavor does not disappoint! All of the hop goodness transfers nicely from the aroma. The malt and fermentation are very clean, supporting the full metal jacket of hop flavors. The finish is semi-dry with a hint of caramel and biscuit. The hop resins pleasantly linger and are the dominant factor throughout. The flavor is phenomenal.
