160z can poured into a New Belgium globe.
A: Bright orange with some haze. One-inch white head is comprised of small bubbles. It settles a bit, but never fully goes away. Big, sticky rings of lacing form the whole way down the glass as the beer is consumed. Impressive.
S: Lots of mandarin orange. Sugary orange gummy candy. Honeydew melon, subtle pineapple and pine scents. Fleshy grapefruit. Malt base is very sweet on the nose. smells absolutely delicious.
T: Green, oily and pithy floral hop tastes open, but give way rather quickly to alternating flavors of orange and grapefruit. Fleshy grapefruit with sugar. Grass clippings and a touch of pine resin. Sweet, sugary malt base takes the edge off the bitterness and really just accentuates everything well. Grapefruit is back, but again with some sugary tastes to offset the bitterness a bit. Finishes with fleshy grapefruit, green tasting hop oils, and a touch of sweet, ever-so-slightly grainy malt.
M: Medium bodied, extremely creamy and smooth with an even, moderate level of carbonation. Very full in the mouth and somewhat slick with hop oils.
O: Damn. This is the best IPA I've had in a long time. A great beer.
Notes: I usually prefer my IPAs on the dry side, but this one works very well.
Serving type: can
