Served on tap into a plastic cup (!) at the taproom on 5/5/13. Despite the plastic cup, this beer looked very pretty. It was a deep brassy orange like a ripe cantaloupe. There was 3cm of thick off-white, frothy head that left thick cob-webs of lacing all over the cup. The nose on this thing really was a highlight of the beer. The smell was bright and effervescent with tons of citrus and tropical fruits highlighted by the ever-present grapefruit along with orange, tangerine, and maybe some touch of pineapple. There was a slight smell of caramel malt in the background as well, but this is definitely not a beer with a hefty malt profile. The taste was pure west coast IPA with tons of citrus hops. The malt side was very muted, but there with some caramel sweetness. This beer was a big, gorgeous buffet of grapefruit, lemon oil, and some tropical notes; maybe the pineapple again, but it was very hard to pin down on my palate. The mouthfeel was medium bodied and quite dry with pretty much no alcohol burn. The bitterness was very smooth and not overly astringent or abrasive. This was a very well done beer. The bartender told me that it was a freshly tapped keg, and I think the freshness of the beer really made it such a good beer. There really is something to say about a beer that is well done and very fresh.
Serving type: on-tap
