3.83/5 rDev -9.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A - Bright gold color, edging on orange. Very clear. White head with excellent lace.
S - Smells like a handful of hop pellets! Loads of pine, lemongrass and melon hop aromas. Somehow, there's a chardonnay wine-like aroma. Slightly acidic.
T - Very strong citrus taste, mainly grapefruit, and an astringent bitterness. Could be more balanced and highlight the malt a bit.
M - Clean, crisp finish and dry, medium body.
O - The aroma on this IPA is world class, but the taste is a bit too one-sided.

On tap at BC's Pizza and Beer
A: Pours a deep golden yellow with nice white head that fades and laces nicely
S: First thing I get is the malt sweetness, followed immediately by tropical and citrus hoppy goodness.
T: Big citrus hop kick, a little almost tropical fruit like notes in there, all well balanced by malt sweetness. There's a bit of grapefruit bitterness on the finish that hangs around.
M: Medium body, medium carbonation, very refreshing
O: I spend so much time trying new stuff that brews like this from right in my back yard often get ignored. Drinking them for the first time in a while is like sitting down with an old friend. Very tasty brew that hits the spot.
