On tap at the Toronado. Poured into a pint glass. No abv info is given.

A-It is lighter than most IPAs. It is a clear golden amber with a nice 1.5 finger head that collapses down to a nice foamy layer. Lots of lace is left in between sips.

S-Citrus, mainly grapefruit, along with some pine are the dominant aromas. I found it to be more subtle than I was expecting from a double dry hopped beer.

T-It has a lot of bitterness. It starts with plenty of grapefruit flavor mixed with some lemon and orange. There is also some earthy hop flavor. The lemon flavor becomes more pronounced towards the final sips. The aftertaste is a combination of grapefruit and earth hops.

M-Medium bodied, nicely carbonated, bitter, and dry.

D-A decent IPA. I felt the earthy flavors made it taste a little rough around the edges.

I actually prefer the original version. I enjoyed the bitter character of the beer but the earthy flavors took away some of its nice citric qualities.

4.23/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a small chalice a nice clear golden dark yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a small off white creamy head, with some nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is hoppy, with a slight malt note, nice citrus and piney notes. The taste is very nice, hoppy with a nice blend of malts, with some citrus/pines. Medium body, chewy, with a nice dry/bitter finish, the ABV is hidden very very well. Overall, a very nice brew.

Serving type: on-tap
