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!

A: Pours opaque golden yellow. one finger head which dissapates quickly.

S: Phenomenal nose. Citrus, tropical fruit. Hints of grapefruit and lemon. Light grassy

T: Same as nose but even better some how.

M: Crisp and refreshing. Almost no bitterness, very smooth.

O: Overall, excellent brew from Jack's Abby. Great hop flavor without the hop bitterness usually associated with this much flavor. Looking forward to the rest of the hopstitution series.
