Received this bottle from Tomme Arthur himself for helping box up the beer the week before the Craft brewers Conference. Thanks go out to him.

Appearance is good. Bright, rich honey/copper-colored brew that is clear. Barely any head formed even off of the aggressive pour.

Smell is very good. Incredible amount of grassy and piney hops jump out from the initial sniff. After a few more sniffs the citrus overtones shine. Very inviting.

Taste is very good. Wow, very nice hop complexity going on here. Hop flavor's I'm tasting are spicey, herbal, piney, grassy and finishes with a touch of grapefruit rind. Holy crap this is a hoppy brew, even by IPA standards. Barely any malt balance at all but what is there is biscuity. Aftertaste is numbing and herbal.

Mouthfeel is good. Light to medium bodied, nice texture and carbonation.

Overall:
A very tasty IPA that I wish was brewed year-round. Very aggressive in the hop department. If there was a little more malt balance I'd like it even more.

Served In: Pint Glass
