4.16/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with a small white head, quickly dissipating down to a small ring around the edge. Has spotty lacing.

S-Smells of grapefruit, citra hops, pine resin, and lightly toasted caramel malt

T-Starts off with a mix of sweet caramel malt and grapefruit with the citra hops, pine, and grass in the middle. Finish is pretty sweet with a bit of dryness, lingering long after the finish.

M-Mouthfeel has a medium body with moderate carbonation.

O-Overall I'm glad I tried this I would buy some more.

Smell is terrible, almost like cat pee. And, the taste is not much better.

Just got around to trying one. Undrinkable.

Golden copper color. Light bodied - too light for a DIPA and for the alcohol that this baby is packing. Tingling citra hops with fruitiness was the highlight. The finish had a funny medicine taste and a touch of alcohol - somewhat unpleasant.

Served on-tap at the tasting room.

A - Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with a small half finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a small ring around the edge, leaving small wisps of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of candied grapefruit, citric hops, pine resin, fresh cut grass, lightly toasted caramel malt and some light booze.

T - Starts off with a mix of sweet caramel malt and the candied fruit quickly being joined by the citric hops, pine, grass and mild booze burn. Finish is pretty sweet with a bit of dryness, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sweet, sticky feel coats the palate. The booze is definitely there from the start, getting warmer as it sits in the glass.

O - One of the better IPA's from Spring House I have had. Usually not a fan of their lighter beers but this one was pretty solid.

Draft offering at the spring house taproom served in a snifter. The brew appears with a polished clarity leaning towards golden in color with a white film resting atop. A full wall of lace coats the glass as it fades.

The aroma is tropical somewhat like pineapple blending to grass and herbal/pulp notes. This overall is very juicy feeling with a touch of fresh toasty grain towards the back. Only once warm does the alcohol poke through a bit.

The taste includes a juicy hop bitterness. Somewhat pulpy with rinds and a long lasting clean bitterness with complimenting warming alcohol. It has a tropical feel throughout but some sips yield a slight fruity sweetness contrasted by herbal and grassy bitterness.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is very drinkable for 10%. I think they really knocked this one out of the park. I could get myself into trouble drinking multiple glasses of this.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Clear, bright golden color; served with pretty much no head.

Smells of caramel, sweet grapefruit, and cat peeing on a Christmas tree. Sweet and sticky on the palate, lots of citrus and a hint of tropical fruit. The caramel was evident throughout. The alcohol was masked extremely well. Nice hop bomb here.
