nonic pint at the brewpub

a: served in a nonic pint, this ipa is a clear golden in color, topped with a dense white head that shows quality retention and some lace

s: superb tropical hop nose of sweet grapefruit, orange, passionfruit, and mango; juicy and vivid, really dig the use of pilsner and pale malts here - it’s very clean and allows the hops to come through full force

m: body a lighter medium, carbonated to a low-moderate level of small, smooth bubbles

t: crisp, clean pils malt and slightly sweet, bready pale sets a clean, easily drinkable structure for the same tropical fruit flavors found on the nose, still juicy and fresh, spicy mango and passionfruit really stand out with a lingering bitter grapefruit rind finish, great

o: really enjoyed this one, the hops are awesome, and great use of pale and pils to create a clean, fantastically drinkable base - cleanly malted ipas almost always sit well with me

4/45/4/45/45

scores 7/12/13: 4/4/4/4/4 Very pleasant, tropical and citrus galaxy character, fresh and vivid, but the malts just aren’t in position to lift this one to the next level. They do provide adequate support, but nothing more, coming across a little bland. Still, very nice ipa.

taking the middle road of differing scores for my entry

16 oz. British style pint purchased at the brewery, unknown creation date, drank over 30 most fantastic minutes

A: 3/3 - yellow-orange coloration, impressive clarity (can both read and see through), received with subtle glass lacing, small alcohol legs

S: 9/10 - lots of tropical fruit - pineapple, mango, papaya, but also picking up on pine resiny aroma pouring out of the glass; very little malt on the nose

T: 17/20 - on the front of the tongue, there is a mild tropical hop bitterness that quickly succumbs to pungent pine predominance (surprisingly for Galaxy but I would guess that there are PW dank hops in the mix); on the middle of the mouth, the hops continue to assault, which some minor malt balancing; little detectable alcohol; dry aftertaste --> awesome session IPA here!

M: 4/5 - little think but expected for the low ABV; low carbonation really accentuates the hops; low alcohol notes

O: 9/10 - I came for Orange Whip but got one of huge best session IPAs/aromatic APAs that I have ever tried; absolutely incredible dank hop aroma with high drinkability is rare as a full-figured supermodel; I could drink the fuck out of this, which totally satisfies this hophead; and, for $4.25/pint, this is highly recommended!

OVERALL: 44/50

On tap at Mad Fox last night. Served in a nonic pint glass.

Pours a very clear light golden color with a good white head and a nice bit of lacing on the way down. The nose has a really nice blend of Citra and Galaxy, focusing more on the latter. The Columbus don't come through quite as much, and may have just been bittering. Nice bit of tropical fruits combined with some nice citrus. Nothing overpowering, but quite pleasant. The flavor is about the same. Nothing really in the malt department, just a nice bit of hop flavor. Body is light and very crisp with a smooth bitterness through the finish. Quite good.

No Orange Whip when I stopped in, so this is what I got instead.

Strong pine and citrus on the nose of this one. Flavor carries much of the same with a salty edge on there also. This one has some bite. Strong resin character on it too. A sipper more so than anything else.
