Pours a translucent golden body with a dense half inch head. Stratospheric lacing.
Aroma is uplifting of freshly squeezed grapefruit served alongside honeyed graham crackers. Also pineapple noted as well.
Taste is a taut resinuous pine, earthy hop bud and grapefruit rind that engulfs the entire palate and stays right in the back of your pie hole. Malty biscuit sweetness balances this act.
Mouthfeel is chewy and there is a drying effect that makes you want to keep drinking. A 'refreshing' brew in an odd way.
For those who like to hop we salute you. A satisfying IPA. Reminiscent of Two Brothers ( Illinois ) seasonal Hop Juice for me, which I love. The $16 6pk is a tad rich for my tastes. Other comparables out there at a lower price tag.
Serving type: on-tap
