I think the Earth just stopped moving.
Poured gently for a 2-finger head, into a wispy film, average lacing, color is sediment-filled amber-orange.
Where to begin.... Cracking this beer fills the air with fresh hops like you've never smelled before. Unreal.
Aroma. Aroma, aroma, aroma.... lovely fresh tart grapefruit hops, lemon bitters. They are the only things I smell, but they are above and beyond.
Taste begins with very sugary grapefruit without any acidity, into lemon. Honestly, these hops are perfect, and nowhere near overpowering. Plentiful, yet not burdensome.
Mouthfeel? How is this possibly a single IPA? This is the by far the single best single IPA I've ever tasted. Screw writing more of this review. BUY THIS BEER.
