Attractive amber gold color in the Crooked Line narrow tulip. It has a perky head and sudsy appeal in the glass. The Citra and Galaxy hops jump right on with the first sip. Flowery hops in the nose with a little butter.
Pronounced orange peel flavor that changes into grapefruit for the aftertaste. Bright and sharp and seriously hoppy. Pretty well blasted with bitterness and saturated in hop oils. A little sweetness emerges now and then. Not much flavor between the extremes of sweet and bitter. Make that candied grapefruit peel.
Of all the interesting brews that these guys make, why do they have to prove they can concoct yet another over-hopped IPA just like the big boys? Tiresome after some sipping, but quite well made for the hop fiend. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Bine & Vine in San Diego.
