Appearance. Clear. Pale amber. A lace that lasts.
Smell: Hoppy grapefruit.
Taste: Bitter hops, grapefruit, and malt.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation.

This has the hop and bitter qualities that I want out of an IPA. The grapefruit smell is so inviting, and the taste follows suit. Basically, it's liquid hops, but not overwhelmingly so and only in good ways. I will get this again.

Pour from the bottle into sam adams pint glass. Very clear deep yellow with a nice white head that sticks around leaving a nice lace. Smell is piney with some fruit and a little honey malt. Nice hoppy taste that leaves a little bitterness on the tounge. Taste a small honey malt but mostly pine grapefruit hops. Feels medium mouthfeel very smooth. Pretty much the same as most ipa but just super soild and just great when looking for a more simple flavorful ipa.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a New Belgium globe glass.

Look: Clear copper color. Cream colored head with good retention and nice lacing.

Aroma: Piny, woody, and hoppy.

Taste: Exactly how I like my IPAs. Barely a malt presence, then straight into wood and pine notes, really good hops. Doesn't have that typical weird yeasty New Belgium taste.

Mouthfeel: Bright, medium body.

Overall: A really good IPA. NB did well here.
