A potent and aromatic beer that is full of lovely, heady hop flavor. This is a top hops beer, with a nice nose and a really strong mouthfeel of bitterness that is not lingering and overpowering. For a low ABV IPA, it is has a lovely profile and it is significantly unique. A very enjoyable, thick flavor of hops, grapefruit and citrus notes covered a nice delectable malt base. Very impressive selection.

A 12 oz bottle picked up at Brusin Ales in Asheville, NC

A - Amber with some clarity. Half a finger of head.

A - Balance between bitter and citrus hops. Fairly sweet

T - A well balanced hoppy brew! Grapefruit and citrus flavors are balanced with the malty backbone. Bitter aftertaste.

M - Medium bodied and very well carbonated. Oily and slick

O - A very good well balanced IPA, but it doesn't close the deal like the top of the line IPA's do. But its close.

Pours a light amber color with a small tight off-white head. Not much lacing on the glass.

Nice grapefruit and pine hop aroma. Some tropical fruit and apricot notes as well. A hint of honey sweetness from the malt. A bit too much on the sweet side for my preference.

Similar taste as in the aroma, except much more earthy. Light grapefruit and a rather large pine burst kick things off. There is a bit of pineapple to provide some sweetness. Finishes with an aspirin/resiny note. The beer hits a pretty wide spectrum of hop flavors. The malt is substantial but doesn't really affect the flavor except to provide a bready base to balance the hops.

Moderate body with fizzy carbonation. Quite bitter on the palate but not overly so. A bit dry in the finish. A little lingering bitterness but not awful. 3.75

A very solid bitter IPA.
