4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
As Pilot Series Imp IPA from Nugget Market in West Sacramento, CA. Pours almost clear copper with a 1 finger creamy beige head. Mixed aroma of floral, citrus and resin hop. Med body with creamy carb. Flavor is fresh fruit and floral over some mildly roasted malt. Now I remember why fresh IPA is good. This is lush hop. Floral, nearly perfumey. Maybe a little resin on the side. Yummy stuff.

Bottle… Clear dirty orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Olfactory highlights are fruity, citrusy hops and earthy pine needles and bark. Full-bodied with a milky texture and soft carbonation. The flavor is malty, citrusy and earthy. It gives a slight nod toward the sweet side of balance – medium roasted sweetness; citric, tannic bitterness. Lengthy, bittersweet finish.
