4.5/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A-Peach colored...nice lace on the glass as I drink

S-Nice big hop aroma...tropical fruits(light mango), citrus (tangerines, grapefruit), and pine...very hop forward....reminds me of some of the IPA's from California

T-Again hop forward....good tight bitterness to this as the pine punch is strong...also good citrus (grapefruit, tangerines) flavor as well...resiny hop bill...pine not as strong as on the nose but evident....the malt (thinking caramel) is definitely in the background ..

M-Perfect body and carbonation...dry on the finish with a good hop bite.

O-If you like IPA's that leave a hop impression this one would be for you. A lot of unsweetened grapefruit on the finish...never borders on hop juice as the malt backing adds just enough to balance a little.

I imagine some will love this to death. I personally like a sweeter citrus take on the hops but can appreciate this for what it is....a quality, well made IPA that could fit nicely in California. They cite seven hop varieties on the bottle but don't name them. Would guess Chinook, and Amarillo are apart of it for sure..

****Just bumped scores up a little...had Saga immediately after this and Saga did not hold up to this one....am doing a six IPA blind taster this weekend with Saga, Hop Dish, Two-Hearted, O'Dell and a couple others to further evaluate its greatness***

Has a bright, fresh aroma with some light citrus notes and some pine and resin. The malt has a sweet note that stays in the back, but is present. There is also a light peppery character. At first the pine and resin notes dominate in the hop flavor, but as it warms the citrus comes out more. The finish is crisp with a light oxydized note. Overall, this one was a pleasant IPA.

Lift Bridge Hop Dish

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into Samuel Adams perfect pint glass. Served chilled...

A) Darker amber with a finger of head. This settles to a dusting. There was some nice lacing.

S) Light tropical fruit sweetness, pineapple and mango. Mostly an earthy hop aroma.

T) Follows the nose... The flavor is better as this one warms up a bit. Tropical fruit is a quick hitter in the flavor, as I found it mainly to be grassy/earthy hops dominating, with some citrus rind on the backend. The alcohol is well hidden.

M) Medium bodied with a nice moderate carbonation level. Finishes dry with bitter rind. Decent aftertaste.

O) This is a decent brew, but in a world of wonderful IPAs to choose from, it's unlikely I'll drink this one again anytime soon.
