12 oz. bottle poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass.
Appearance: Pours a crystal clear gold color with a two inch white head.
Smell: Bursting with citrus and grapefruit along with some floral hop notes and just a hint of mango. Excellent.
Taste: Keeps the same hop profile as the aroma with citrus and floral hops. A bit of grassiness as well. Bittering hops come through in a big way. Honestly, the bitterness overpowers the hop flavor a bit - The citrus seems muted compared to the aroma. I think a little more malt backbone would benefit this beer - there's really nothing to hold up to the bitterness. Still a very solid IPA.
Mouthfeel: Extremely dry, very crisp. Bitterness lingers on the palate big time.
Overall: A very good IPA that could be truly incredible with something to hold the bittering hops in check.
Serving type: bottle
