Poured from the garage kegerator into my Duvel tulip.
The pour generated a nice eggshell white 2-3 finger head that sat on top of a light amber/copper body. The head stayed around for the entire beer and left beautiful lacing down the side. Something we all like to see.
Smell - Immediately after the pour you could notice the bouquet of pine, citrus and grapefruit notes that are just leaping out at you. What a very aromatic beer we have here!
Taste - A bit lighter than what expected, and those expectations came from the wonderful aroma that this one produces. Just enough bitterness hits you up front, which quickly fades away. I think the carbonation ups the perceived bitterness. I get notes of grapefruit and citrus muddled together.
Mouthfeel - lighter body, medium carbonation which seems to help out with the bitterness of this beer and balance out the malt body that this possesses.
Overall - For a sessionable IPA, this one hits the nail right on the head. Very tough to beat to have a beer with the flavor and ABV, along with the wonderful aroma. It is a great session beer, you can have many of these and not worry. This beer will be great for those warm summer afternoons when you don't want something too light. This will also satisfy your hunger for hops on those hot sunny days.
Serving type: on-tap
