4.1/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

22oz bomber, bottled on 9/21/12, served in pint glass. Beer pours a pale straw color with a medium yellowish white head. Intense grapefruit aroma...mmm. Flavor is totally crisp with really bright hop flavors. Despite being way up in your face, the hop flavors are pretty mellow. This is not pure cascade. Amarillo? Carbonation is pretty high but works well here. This is a really great, if high ABV, IPA. Totally enjoyable and worth drinking.

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

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a two month-old 12 oz bottle into a willi glass. It's a clear gold with slight orange color and a one finger tight head and minimal lacing. Beautiful floral and citrus notes on the aroma with just a touch of dank. Taste is of citrus, particularly orange, and malty sweetness, followed by a hint of dank. Mouth is perfect for the style. Overall, this is a great IPA. I wish I could get it easier where I'm at.
