Draft pour into tulip at Apex in PDX.
A - Glowing amber with a fine white head, and tight shimmering lace.
S - Fresh and bright with a subtle combination of citrus and evergreen.
T - Deceptively smooth and almost simple at first blush, yet full of flavor without hitting you over the head. Caramel malts appear first with tropical fruit coming next and a nice earthiness grounding the whole. Hop flavor and bitterness develops with each sip: pineapple, then a citric bite, next lemon zest and a hint of grapefruit, and finally resinous pine. Alcohol is surprisingly masked. The most balanced DIPA I have encountered.
M - Full body and smooth with a nice snap of dry bitterness and tight (perfect) carbonation.
O - Wow. I'm a fan of big IPAs (Mongo, Sculpin, PTE, etc.) but this is impressive in its ability to be subtle and complex all at once. Super drinkable.
Serving type: on-tap
