Just love making IPAs, so here's another one that uses a new hop blend called Zythos that is just delicious and should be enjoyed with a blow-up doll or something similar.

Brewed with Zythos hop blend.

On tap at The Bridge, STL.

A- Poured a clear, copper color with a small, tan head of bubbly foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled fruity - mostly citrus fruits like tangerine and grapefruit. Some caramel sweetness.

T - Good grapefruit flavor with a touch of tangerine and pith. A toasty caramel backbone.

M - It was crisp,sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a really nice beer. Not sure if it felt like a DIPA but at 8.5% I decided to add it as a DIPA.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of pine from the hops, as well as some floral notes and some biscuit malt. The flavor is also very nice. I get a good dose of pineapple and pine, as well as some floral and perfume-like notes. There is also a hint of grass and some biscuit malt. There is a ton of hop flavor but the bitterness is low. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured from a bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass. It is a copper color with a good amount of white head. Leaves a lacing down the glass. Smell is very piney and a taste to match. Very good showing from a beer that has a not so appealing name. I am becoming a huge fan of 2nd Shift.

Poured from the tap a very lightly hazed orange color with one finger of dense off-white head.

Aroma of orange peel and pine with a hint of caramel malts.

The taste was much like the aroma. Bright citrusy orange and pine with a nice sweet caramel backbone. A light bitterness to the finish.

Medium bodied and clean with a moderate carbonation.

A very nice IPA/IIPA from 2nd Shift. Even with a name like Ratsalad, I'll definitely have again.
