4.11/5 rDev -3.1%
Fairly dry and citric nose on this one. Good grapefruit presence....a bit tropical perhaps. But certainly hoppy and dry.
There's an immediate good dose of grapefruit and definite pineapple hop bitterness here starting out....followed by quite the formidable caramel malt base. One of the sweeter IPA's I've ever had, but that doesn't mean that it compromises the bitterness. It certainly has both. Finishes quite dry and bitter, although not in a lingering way.
A great English IPA, no question. Many of the style seem to sacrifice the bitterness but this is full flavored all the way on both fronts. Bitter, sweet, then dry.

A - Copper with an one finger beige head. Long lasting lacing
S - Lots going on in here: Citrus, grapefruit, pine, resin, with hints of toasted malt.
T - Citrus up front which blends into some appealing malt. A slight hop bitterness towards the back with a refreshing finish.
M - Medium carbonation and body. Full flavor but very balanced.
O - I really enjoy this very drinkable beer. Everything from the different types of malts to just enough hops is in perfect balance. This beer is one of my regular go to brews.
Really looking forward to picking up some more.
