Appearance- poured from a deuce deuce bottle into a wide flute glass. Maybe about a quarter ince of head with small bubbles. After the head subsides, theres still a small layer of foam on the top. Looks great. This beer has a slightly darker orange hue to it, just a tad darker than the peel of a grapefruit. Minimal lacing, it looks nice in this glass as the lacing is all drawing from the middle of this glass.
Smell- bittersweet citrus of course, maybe a bit more on the bitter side honestly. The Centennial hops are very prevalent, as you should expect from an IPA like this. Smells like a tasty alcoholic grapefruit drink.
Taste- As the beer goes down, the grapefruit really gets to you right at the back of your mouth. WONDERFUL for those who like that bitter hoppy goodness that comes with IPAs. The grapefruit really subdues the maltiness of this beer.
Mouthfeel- medium bodied, maybe a bit heavier bodied than some IPAs, very smooth and silky to the tongue, moderate carbonation. Crisp and a nice dry finish that is not to powerful.
Overall- this is a pretty good IPA. There are plenty out there that I have enjoyed much more, but this is definitely a pretty enjoyable IPA. It is not very complex however, as the grapefruit peel taste subdues the front end of its taste. Has a great hoppy bitterness to it that we all love in IPAs, but its only drawback is that it tastes SO much like grapefruit and hops that this is about all there is to this beer. If that's what you want from it, however, it delivers with much success.
