Pours a light coppery color with a small head and great lacing. It smells of citrus and somewhat grapefruit like. Obviously full of hops.
The flavor is quite interesting--I expected something very bitter like a Dogfish Head 90 min, but instead, it is very pleasing to the tongue. I don't think I've ever had an IPA that was balanced this well. In fact, this can hurt you--it tastes of less alcohol than a 5% beer, yet it is 9.2! Wow. It just shows that a good balance makes the best beer. I get a bit of residual bitterness, but nothing like a typical IPA. This is an impressive IPA for sure!
The mouthfeel is pleasant, and the carbonation is slightly low. The drinkability is by far greater than any other IPA I've had to include the last one I brewed.
Seek out to buy this beer.
