Served on-tap at Al's of Hampden.
A - Pours clear golden yellow with a nice one finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving spotty trails of thin lace down parts of the glass.
S - Smells of pungent citric hops, fresh tropical fruits - mostly grapefruit and mango - and some light caramel sweetness. Nice and fresh with plenty of inviting aromas, very nice.
T - Starts off with an intense citric hop bitterness, that lasts till the finish, slowly giving way to hints of tropical fruit and some caramel sweetness. Finish is pretty dry with a touch of sweetness, not lingering on the palate for very long.
M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, bitter feel from start to finish with some lingering dryness at the very end.
O - This version is quite West Coast yet still easy to finish. The hops are bright and flavorful but not overpowering. A really nice, simple IPA. Give it a try if you have the chance.
