A: Slightly deeper than pale gold, with a delicate off-white foam head.
S: Sharp citrus then followed by hop resin, then maybe a touch of pine. I am guessing Citra is one of the hops and makes it interesting.
T: Definately one of the best and big Double IPAs in the Midwest. Citrus blast and starts to build a big malt background but then quickly disappears. Leaves a touch of bitterness, but it's grape fruity profile...that I personally like. Full mouthfeel, but not cloying. Not too sweet, just right amount.
O: I am a big fan of this brew. Big Scot is bugged a tad by the bitterness, but I like the overall blend of this brew.
I have had this beer many times. I can't remember how many at this point but five years later, either this beer has changed and/or my taste have. This is beer that everyone and anyone that likes hoppy beers should seek out.
Look: Pale gold.
Light lace. No head.
Yeast at bottom, single pour and decant. Clear if poured correctly, haze if not poured right.
Taste: Dang, pretty good. Citra up front- with 5 lbs of hops, it has a thick resiny element- chinook background? Light malt base- its all about the hops.
