On tap tonight at Poor Phil's in Oak Park, IL...served in a Sam Adams perfect pint...
Pours a nice deep copper color, good clarity with a thin cap of fine white head, some lacing is left behind...
Initially sweet, good amount of caramel malt...then the citrus and floral hop aroma hits, perfect...
Slightly bitter initially with a good amount of grapefruit and floral hops...malt is prevalent, sweet, caramel adds a nice balance to the IPA, neither aspect overpowers the other...
Very creamy mouthfeel, seriously almost cask-like. Medium to heavy bodied, smooth...
Very good beer, mouthfeel was a little weird but not at all bad...doesn't drink like a 9.0% beer, would love to try this again...
Serving type: on-tap
