3.28/5 rDev -15.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25
Pours a beautiful bright gold with a two-finger head into my glass and plenty of lacing on said glass.
Acidic grapefruit note in the nose with additional notes of mango and tangerine from the hops. It has the aroma of a DIPA without the alcohol.
Flavors are not so intense on the tongue. Lots of bitter, acidic grapefruit, which unfortunately overshadows all the other aromas at play (mango and tangerine).
Mouthfeel finishes like a swig of grapefruit juice with a dab of buttery malt underneath.
The high points are a use of grapefruit peel and 4 different hops, which bring aromas of mango and tangerine to the table.
The low point is finish, which is way too bitter for me to handle. It may turn off fans of citrus-forward IPAs.

3.76/5 rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Poured from 22 oz bottle into a snifter.
Pours medium amber, little head.
Smells malty and hoppy. Good balance in aroma.
Taste is a bit more malt forward than expected, good bitterness, not very citrusy outside of the grapefruit element.
Mouthfeel was good.
Overall, a good IPA.

Served on tap into a pint glass
A- Poured a dark hazy golden color with frothy white head that left webbed lacing.
S- Big peach, pineapple. and citrus notes. Very aromatic, hoppy. and fruity aroma.
T- Some pretty big peach, pineapple, and light citrus hop notes. Pretty big caramel malt backbone but the flavor was definitely front-loaded with it getting a little watery towards the finish.
M- Very light and pretty refreshing, finishes fairly watery
O- A very refreshing and light summer IPA. Nice fruity hop character, wish it would have stayed through the whole sip though. Pretty light bitterness.
Serving type: on-tap
