3.53/5 rDev -7.8%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.
A: Slightly hazy, medium amber color with a heavy ring of peripheral off-white bubbles. Light lacing remains and a few specks of yeast sediment are seen at the bottom of the glass.
S: Aggressive hops convey mixed citrus qualities in the nose that are joined by less potent herbaceous and earthy smells. Nothing really says malt in the smell, although a suggestion of sweetness to come is transmitted. No alcohol is detected.
T: Begins sweet, with acidic and lively grapefruit citrus aromatics that are more intense than they are interesting. As the early assault of hop flavors relent, soft and mild bready malt emerges in the brief middle. The finish is moderately bitter, somewhat herbaceous but otherwise clean. No alcohol is detected.
M: Medium viscosity, sticky and acidic on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: Intense but simplistic, this beer is a mixed bag of style-appropriate, if not particularly memorable, flavors. It would likely seduce only the newly-converted hop-head. Think of it as training wheels for the top tier DIPAs.

A hazy, amber-rust, with a fast-going head that sticky's up the glass.
A wholly anonymous aroma, quiet, very reserved. I mean it's hard to get anything in the nose. Some wine-like fruit, candy shell. That's about all, folks.
In the mouth the fruit steps forth as navel orange and pineapple, turning to tart lemonade in the middle. White grapefruit rind bitterness in the long finish. A little sweetness lingers. The 8.5% alcohol is there, but not calling attention to itself.
I wish there were more malt, caramel malt would be nice. The sweet fruit provides balancing. I just wish it were more grainy.
