Cloudy, pale straw (SRM 3-4). A big, rocky, off-white head lingers while carbonation clings to the Cisco fisheye pint glass.

Strong grapefruit beckons from the glass, then infuses with orange, only to come back out again as the beer warms. The aroma is overall fresh, but in the background one can lightly detect a struck match.

The grapefruit flavors are quite bitter and followed quickly by fresh orange rind. Some balance is retained before a moderate, bitter finish.

Dry, with a medium body and woolly texture. Ample prickly carbonation lifts the alcohol above a slight metallic note.

This is a good IPA, though more reserved than most. Flavors are equal parts with bitterness. Madaquet IPA would work well with lunch, say prosciutto. This one brings back memories of relaxing afternoons in ‘Sconset.

Serving type: growler
