Madaquet pours a cloudy honey yellow with little foam on top. Only a few spots of lace on the glass between sips.

The strong aroma is loaded with grapefruit citrus, pine and a little grass/hay.

Each sip of this full bodied beer is chewy, dry and mildly carbonated. The flavor is loaded with grapefruit citrus, pine, some lemon rind and enough sweet malt and cereal grain to hold it together. It finishes moderately bitter and dry with a some grass notes. Once gone the grapefruit citrus, grass and malt sweetness lingers on the palate.

The hops in this beer just don't fade. Tons of hop flavor and chewy body makes me want to brush my teeth after drinking a pint.

Shared by argo0. Thanks Aaron.

The beer is extremely pale yellow with a thin, wispy, white head. The aroma brings oranges, assorted citrus. So easy to drink with tropical fruit abounding. Very light bready malt offers support. Hints of lemon. Delicious. Highly recommended.

Lucky enough to have purchased a bottle a month ago and am enjoying every crisp, hoppy sip right now. What a delightful IPA. Sorry it's a one-time brew, but so lucky to have the privilege of tasting it. Cheers!
