4.25/5 rDev +6.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Poured into my snifter at fridge temp, with a generous pour, yielding a solid fruity looking orange color and a spiffy 2 finger white head that falls slowly. Perfect look to this one.
Smell is fresh grapefruit, lemon, and orange. Also detecting a peach smell, and maybe some pineapple. Very fruity and inviting. Almost perfect.
Taste is a very mild sweetness and bitterness at first, then the sweetness dies off and you get the bitter IPA notes. It doesn't taste as fruity as it smells, but this is a lower alc. IPA. I get wet hay, pine resin, and citrus notes.
Feel is spot on with plenty of carb and a light mouthfeel.
Overall I like this IPA better than alot of pale ales of the same alc content. Its very drinkable, yet its downside is it's quite expensive at 6.50 bomber.

3.68/5 rDev -8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Served on tap into a nonic glass.
A- Poured an orange color with soapy white head that left minimal lacing.
S- Lots of pungent grapefruit and orange citrus notes with an underlying malt sweetness.
T- Lots of sweet and pungent citrus hop character, orange marmalade, and oatmeal notes. Moderate to high bitterness.
M- Dry, medium body, prickly carbonation, and pretty smooth.
O- Despite the moderate to high level of bitterness of this IPA, it still did not cut through the sweetness of this beer.
Serving type: on-tap
