A: Bright yellow with a little yeasty haze. Soft, pure white big foam head.
S: Lemon grass first impression. Deeper inhales shows show grapefruit and a little pine.
T: Appealing citrus blend, with malt definitely held in check. Comes across as crisp and fresh, but not too low in flavors. Malt sweetness very clean. Medium mouth-feel but far from thick. Can't tell this is a 7.0% abv.
O: Probably one of the top American IPAs. Perfect balance, malt is in a supporting role to the sophisticated hop presence. Real pleasure to drink in the flavors, yet really crisp. Solid brew from a crazy solid brewery.
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver.'" - Jack Handy
