3.7/5 rDev -3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Notes: Born on 5/4/14 (current date 6/1/14). Poured into a nonic pint.
A: Golden color with a full 1+ finger head of pillowy white head. The head looks "dense" but it does not cling tot he glass and give lacing. The head seems to want to stick around.
S: Mango, peach and pine. Really nice tropical aromas.
T: Much more pine than I expected (based on the nose). Not getting much of the tropical fruit - much more pine present. Also I sense more bitter than the 42 IBUs lead me to believe - not harsh but I have had much higher IBU beers that had less bitter to them.
M: Slightly thin with average carbonation. This is the right balance for a sessionable IPA.
O: This is an enjoyable beer. With 4.7% ABV and a light body it is very sessionable. If I wanted to sit down and have one beer - this would not be it (I'd go for something a little heavier). But after a hard day in the sun one or two of these would be nice.

4.11/5 rDev +6.8%

Poured into a wide chalice: this is a medium-gold, clear beer with a slight but solid head. The aroma is really packed with citrusy hops, lemon-grapefruitish! The flavor packs a strong bitterness up front, together with loads of citrus hop flavor. Malt doesn't really come into play at all. In fact, I'd be somewhat dubious about this beer, since the body is so light and there's no malt presence, except I realize it's supposed to be an IPA that's quaffed and enjoyed by volume, and as such, it fills a welcome niche. Heck, I might even drink the rest of this six-pack straight from the bottle, out in the garden. Drinkability gets A++.
