On tap @ The Lodge in Hilton Head SC.
I've been sipping the regular Westbrook IPA all week, and now on our last night here I find this beer on tap and HAD to try it.
Clear light golden body... Small head, rather weak lacing, but decent retention.
Smells hugely of citrus fruits with a light dry booziness coming through.
The flavor has a little sweet bread (think Hawaiin bread) kind of note before the citrus hops just fucking kill it. Large grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and lemon notes with a nice New Zealand hop kick I can pick out.
Good bitterness, not too overwhelming, but firm and strong-- you KNOW you're drinking a hopped up beer for sure. Kind of light body, but good carbonation and a nice dry finish.
Overall-- delicious. It isn't a world class DIPA, but it certainly rocked my world after this past week. Totally worth a try.
Serving type: on-tap
