500 ml bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: A two finger head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a hazy golden yellow color with some vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Lemon, grassy, citrus, toasted, grainy, pale malts, lager yeast.

Taste: A nice blend of above aromas and malts with tingly bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, refreshing, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, some bitterness, and a little chewy.

Overall: I like how this series is going. Keep it up boys.

Bottled 03 Oct 2014, picked up at Julio's.

A clear yellow with a dense, white head with excellent retention and nice lacing, this looks great. The nose is great. Very fruity, a blend of citrus and melons, I get a blend of milder citrus (sweet limes, satsumas) and ripe honeydew and maybe Crenshaw melon? A slight spicy, peppery kick is present as well. Malt character is absent, this is dry as a bone with a very simple profile, allowing the hops to shine. A mild pine character is present as well, along with a bitterness reminiscent of green grape skins.

The palate opens bright, clean and fruity with the Citra hops dominating, lending their tropical and pine characteristics, along with the more delicate melony notes. Pine, orange, lemongrass, melon, mango and papaya are all present. Light in body with a crisp, cracker-like malt backbone, this beer has moderate carbonation which allows the hop flavor to shine. Supple with a pleasant oiliness, this feels great on the palate. An excellent beer

Lasting head that leaves a blanket of lace. Very hazy--almost white to the dirty gold color.

Lots of citrusy, hop nose. Dry.

Raw bitterness up front through the long aftertaste. Quite spicy, almost like red pepper flakes. Full bodied.

Had a draft of this delicious IPL and found it to be nicely carbonated, well balanced and not overly hopy. Full of citrus flavors I definitely tasted some orange in with the lemon and grapefruit. Definitely worth trying if you can get your hands on some!
