Exactly what a sessionable IPA should be, if there is such a thing. Pleasant nose from the dry hopped cascade hops. Immediate fore tongue bitterness fades to a coniferous finish. Just enough alcohol/sweetness to balance the IBU’s
Draft at the brewpub, Sault Ste. Marie. Hazy orange-brown body, medium clumping cream head. Hoppy, rindy nose; toasty and earthy. Herbal, grassy, leafy, bitter body backed by toast and light berries, in addition to pine and wacky tobacky. Medium-bodied. Pleasant. Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2012
16oz pint at brewery. Pours an amberish red with a nice beige head. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste the same with a bit more hops. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and goes down easy.
