4.03/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Picked this up as a single yesterday when I was out and about, and consumed during the Patriots/Ravens game (seriously Billy Cundiff?). Poured straight out of the fridge into my Delirium tulip.

A: A bad pour on my part, letting some sediment into the glass. Otherwise a dark orange with a small white head with little retention. I imagine it would have been a more aesthetically pleasing beer if I had been more careful.

S: Grapefruit rind and other citrus. A bit of grassy notes. Pleasant and even better as it warms.

T: The grapefruit certainly comes out in the taste as well. There's a bit of pine, but that citrus rind is dominating. A solid malt base leads to a pleasant aftertaste, one asking for another sip.

M: Maybe the best part of the beer. Very smooth with light carbonation. Again, a pleasant lingering of flavors that I really liked.

O: I had expected a lot from this beer and I can't help but feel a little bit let down. Still a good beer and one I wouldn't hesitate to drink again, but I'd pass this over for a number of other IPAs.

I know it's not kosher to rate a beer a perfect 5, but I have no other choice! This, to me, is the perfect beer! It has a great citrus/piney beginning with a perfectly malty backbone that slides down the back of your tongue until your stomach is in a euphoric state! This IPA is the ultimate IPA and if you haven't tried it, you are truly missing out! I don't know if there is a brewery with a more well rounded selection of beers!
