Choss (Figure 8)

I had a snifter of this triple IPA from the tap at Figure Eight. It was one very much worth noting. This is not distributed past the pub, but if you're in the area it's a must try.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: The hop oils made for a very thick and dense head. It was a straw-colored brew. It smelled musky and like a freshly opened bag of hops.

Taste: This brew gave me chills at the taste of it. It was musky, fruity, and earthy. It had a bitter spike. It was floral like over-steeped tea. It was hops in a glass. A range of hops that complemented each other well. Yum.

From the F8 site:
A pale creamy head lingers and laces the sides of the glass atop this hop lover's dream which piles in Polaris, Cluster, and Perle hops to produce a sweet nose with floral, citrus, and pine tones; a medium malt body; and a crisp bitter finish - delightful.
