12oz brown glass pry-top with a production code but no freshness date.
Appearance: A nice, clear and bright medium orange amber with two and a half fingers of fluffy, bone-white foam. Sticks to the glass and won't let go!
Nose: Lots of grapefruit with a prickly pine needle undertone. A little whisper of malt makes its way through all the citrus hops. It smells like it's going to be fairly dry.
Palate: Aggressive hops. A little prickly both from alcohol and hop bitterness right up front. As that subsides, grapefruit, scorched citrus, dried leaves, candied ginger and a little dried malt towards the finish. The hop flavor is very fresh and almost perfumed tasting. Body is medium to light.
Notes: This beer is really hoppy, dry and pretty bitter. My only complaint is about the mouthfeel...it seems a little watery on the mid-palate. The bitterness is there, but not the texture. A GREAT session IPA, especially for the bucks, but not necessarily something that I'm going to drink all the time. Love to try it on draft sometime.

I gotta admit, the score the brothers gave this little pearl has me curious, my friends. I guess that's the greatest thing about beer and wine though in particular; they'll appeal differently to anyone who tries it! I wouldn't recommend this beer on a hot day or during a bbq on the porch or poolside, but if you're looking to relax in front of the tube or while pouring over whatever texts you prefer, then you may be in for a nice little treat!
