look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Moderate hand. Bottled 12.18.13.
A: Apple-juice, golden yellow with good clarity. 1.5 fingers of off-white head. Good retention. Moderate lacing.
S: Sweetness & bitterness. Grapefruit & lighter pine. Orange. Touch of pine. Bread & biscuit.
T: Bittersweet, vaguely fruity initially with development of a moderate American hop bitterness. Dry finish. Lingering essence of grapefruit pulp. Light alcohol presence. Malt backbone is present throughout.
M: Low to moderate carbonation with moderate body. Palate coating with slightly syrupy texture.
O: Smooth brew with hops and malt on fairly equal footing for an American IPA. Solid drinker for the first of the day!
Serving type: bottle

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.
Serving type: on-tap
