3.95/5 rDev -5%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 12 oz bottle. Into tulip style pint.
Appearance- Deep copper color. Crystal clear and bubbly. Two finger head that leaves a lace rim where the original head was. Impressive.
Smell- A heap of grapefruit scents. Not as Piney as most IIPAs. Scent doesn't stick around long, kinda faded with the head. I was a little dissapointed.
Taste- Hoppy bitterness. Citrusy. Not sweet at all. Very sharp bite. Would go great with a sharp salty cheese. It's simple and it tastes good, nuff said.
Mouthfeel- Very crisp. Light-bodied. Highly carbonated.
Drinkability- At 7.2% it's one of the lighter IIPA's, so you can have a couple or 4. It's a nice beer that you don't have to think much about, so it's great when you're out with friends.
Overall- Very good beer. Not outstanding. The only complaint I have is that it lacks the sweet finish that I've come to really enjoy from an IIPA. Still, I will gladly drink this again. And the price won't break the bank.
