On tap @ Redbones in Somerville, MA.
Slightly opaque orange and slightly yellow with small off-white head that laced nicely. Strong citrus hops aroma.
Flavor up front was very strong and bitter floral hops. Malt sweetness eventually fades in. Aftertaste is grapefruit like citrus flavor. Bitterness dominates throughout the flavor timeline. Finish is dry.
Decent but too bitter for my taste, as I prefer an IPA with a stronger malt balance. It did grow on me though.
Serving type: on-tap
