4.49/5 rDev +5.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pours transparent amber and carbonation is evidence after the pour as bubbles surface to a white head.
Smell: The hops are very evident immediately, with some hints of citrus.
Taste: Great hop flavor but smooth and a bit sweet, not bitter. Relatively high ABV (7.5%) is completely masked and unnoticeable.
Mouthfeel: Light carbonation and bitterness is balanced very nicely, not overpowering. Very smooth.
Overall: I am a bit biased because I live in Tampa but this is one of my favorites for the beer style. I'm lucky that I live someplace where I can keep these on regular rotation in the refrigerator. I'm not a big IPA fan (like it, don't love it) but this is one of my favorites. The hops and bitterness are very well balanced and not overpowering. Overall just a good beer.

In a teku
A- cream-colored foamy head two fingers thick. Cloudy orange/amber body with residue floating around and no visible carbonation. 4
S- light citrus, lemongrass, grapefruit peel, sweet malt. 4
T- considerably sweet and malty, like oatmeal almost, but then a dose of grapefruit breaks through. I suspect some of the hop aroma and flavor have faded. Tough to know since there's no canned date here. 4
M- medium-bodied, malt-heavy, with a mild, pleasant bitterness. The finish is semi-dry and lingers with both sweet and bitterness. 4
Overall, it's good but I still am not convinced I've ever had this beer fresh enough to be blown away. 4
