BOD 5/5/14. Almost clear golden pour with an amber note. Very good head, lacing and retention. The nose is mostly tropical, although there are hints of grapefruit, over a biscuit sweetness. Heavy light body with only a hint of smooth texture. Above normal carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. Very nice balanced flavor profile with a complex mix of hop flavors, moderate bittering and subtle sweetness. It begins with the tropicals, flows to mild grapefruit rind bitterness and a light biscuit sweetness is noted underneath. The finish leaves you with a pleasant rind like bitterness. An outstanding flavorful session IPA.
