tall boy : tulip pint

Clear golden with a foamy, craggy off white head.

Big citric, grapefruit nose.

Citric and grapefruit again upfront, with some resiny hops as well. Just a faint biscuit malt backbone.

Medium-full body, average carbonation.

A well done IPA. Pleasant hop notes and body.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a warm, clear honey color with moderate carbonation. About 1.5" of slightly offwhite head forms that has great retention and lacing. Very attractive IPA.

Smell: Just a hint of caramel malt peeks out initially, but that is quickly overshadowed by great hop aromas. Citrus, orange rind and pine all come to mind.

Taste: Some nice caramel malt backbone hits up front, but again gives way to great citrus hop flavors. Orange rind and a hint of bitter grapefruit make up the bulk of mid-palate, and the finish is bitter pine hops. Not overly bitter, but just about right.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is light-medium with about the right amount of carbonation. Very dry finish. Nice. Overall, this one kind of surprised me. I've drank a fair amount of IPAs but for some reason always found a reason to skip over this one. Not anymore. I will definitely be buying this again in the future. Very nice all around and easy drinking IPA.
