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.

Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip.
Pours a golden color with a nice lacing.
Amazing hop and apple cider aroma.
This brew is amazing. Great hop flavor but well balanced, refreshing, crisp, and really just great. What can I say that hasn't been said already. Such a great IPA.
