Had this one just a few minutes ago, and I have to say I'm was VERY Impressed.
Appearance: Hazy orange in color with a thick bubbly off white eggshell head. GORGEOUS Presentation especially in a decorated glass german stein.
Smell: Grapefruit and Hopcones with pines, accompanied by very slight aromas of a loaf of challah. Quite nice overall.
Taste: RIDDLED with Grapefruit and accompanied by grassy hops and pines. If there is any pale malt I can't really distinguish it. Good flavor overall.
Mouthfeel: Smooth in texture with a watery complexion feels and works well with the rest of the beer.
Drinkability: This beer encompasses so much with so little effort: its Sharp, Crisp, Powerful, Mild, and Smooth all in one. Its Excellent overall and I could Easily drink several on a hot summers day.
I also feel that it is necessary for me to mention that American IPA's are undoubtedly my least favorite style of beer and I'd go as far as to say that I DETEST them. So to say that I think this one is exceptional and that I really like it means that it stands out as an exceptional beer among a style that I have no other interest in. Truly an excellent beer.
