look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Served from 22 oz bottle, obtained through Letspour. Poured in Grimbergen chalice.
Big creamy carbonation...full mouthfeel.
Rich flavors of grassy hops, dark malts, cream of tartar, pine sap, grapefruit, sourdough bread rind. Very vibrant in the mouth...lots of flavors.
15 minutes into tasting...
Bigger bitterness than sweetness, creamy with a big head throughout, rich melons, slight herbal spice, slight soap water, minerals, funky astringency. Full flavored and tasty but not delicious.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a half finger white head that dissipates to a thin layer with good lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, grapefruit and citrus rind. Flavor is grapefruit, citrus hops with a light pine component, sweet malt. Hops and malt are nicely balanced. Finishes with citrus rind, grassy hops and residual citrus flavor. Medium body with some creaminess; nice mouth feel. A well balanced, pleasant IPA that is not as flavorful or intense as other IIPAs, but enjoyable.

Attractive coppery orange-tinted amber. Plenty of foam in the Kasteel chalice with a sudsy mouthfeel. Pleasant grapefruit scent with some resiny notes.

Interesting flavors with a warm malty base. Toasty, biscuity, appley. Warming in the throat with alcohol. Moderate bitterness creeps up the dial as you sip. Still it's much less than most big IPAs. Some sweetness persists. Hints of mango and scorched pineapple. While flavorful, everything about this is lightened up and more friendly.

I think this is a highly drinkable and tasty IPA. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood, Washington.
