4.1/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

22 oz bottle served in a Unibroue snifter.

Pours a clear deep amber with a sudsy bone head. Modearate retention and lacing from this head.

Aroma: a nice complex hop aroma, clearly reflecting multiple varieties. Citrus and earthy/English (hops) notes.

Taste: like the aroma, there's a nice mix of several hop varieties here giving this more depth and complexity that many Amer. IPAs. No shortage of malt either, there being enough to really hold the bitterness in check despite the 75 IBUs indicated on the label. The flavor starts very juicy, then more bread, herbal and earthy notes appear. The finish is again nicely citrusy, with some lingering toasted malt.

M: medium body with an exceptionally (for style) dry finish. Also quite smooth with no tongue burn.

O: A special IPA that is flavorful and satisfying. Well crafted although the substantial malt load makes this less aggressively hoppy than some may prefer. One of the best I've had in this style, particularly if used as a session brew.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a hazy medium amber orange with an average (1-2 finger) white sudsy head that slowly receded, down to a medium film and large collar with excellent sticky lacing.

The aroma was of grain malts, floral and pine hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange).

The taste was a bit malty with a hint of caramel and a mild citrus sweetness early on, progressing with a nice bitter piney hop taste, a bit of grapefruit with a mildly bitter floral ending. The flavor lasted an average time following the swallow, with a hoppy citrus taste left behind to linger on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry yet somewhat creamy texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall this is a very simple IPA, a dose of hops, caramel and a touch of citrus. Sometimes simplicity is the best way to go. Simply delicious...
