On tap ay Final Gravity. This beer came as a very pleasant surprise. Pours a bit dark for an ipa. Smells great, nice hop character. Tastes bitter but balanaced. Lots of floral characters and a kick of bitter. Good mouthfeel. Outstanding from a small local brewery
Serving type: on-tap

Growler purchased from the brewery the previous day, poured into tulip.
A: Pours a dark burnt amber color with a very greasy resinous light tan head that faded into an oily film. Sheets of sticky lacing were left down the glass. You can definitely tell there are a lot of hops in this beer just by looking at it.
S: Huge grapefruit and citrus rind nose, very fresh and citrus-centric. I might detect a hint of mint as well.
T: More citrus hops with great notes of fresh grapefruit pith. Slightly sweet caramel malt undertones are just barely noticeable through the bitter hoppy onslaught. Finish is slightly sweet with a clean malty sugariness, and the aftertaste is full of ambiguously bitter citrus rind.
M: Medium-full body, wet, slick, hop resin mouthfeel, soft carbonation.
O: Probably their most polished and well-rounded hoppy beer I've had. If they bottled this it would fly off the shelves.
Serving type: growler
