3.73/5 rDev -4.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
On-tap at Against The Grain, Dublin, Ireland
A: The beer is hazy amber yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head.
S: Light aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has some flavors of citrusy hops and a light to moderate amount of associated bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes more like an English IPA but is very flavorful for the style—having a good amount of citrusy flavors—compared to other Irish IPAs.
Serving type: on-tap

On draft in any of the Galway Bay Brewery Bars (although I certainly find Salthouse in Galway the best), this is an absolutely stunning IPA. Not comparable to the bottle format. It really is just something very special on draft. I have sampled every tap IPA on offer in Brew Dog bars for example and this comes out ahead.

3.83/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Webby eggshell head over pale amber body with plenty of fizz.
Big resin and herbal hop nose with orange segments, too.
Some apricot and caramel but bitter citrus rind cuts in right away with some pear and grass.
Watermelon and orange blossom finish and powdery linger.
Lt-med, some chew, round.
Relaunched, now Columbus, El Dorado and Cascade (45 IBU).
With these hops at 45 IBUs, this should be aroma over bitterness, but that's not happening here. I get (or project) some of the fruit candy notes of El Dorado, but it's tough to work around dry hop grassiness and chalky bitterness. Nothing like the freshness of a Lagunitas which, if you're at the low end of IBU and ABV for an American IPA and don't have a supercrisp body (which this doesn't), is really what you should go for.
Modest success, which is another way of saying unfulfilled potential.
