4.35/5 rDev +1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Poured a hazy light copper color with about 1 1/2 fingers of sticky head. The head dissipated slightly, but still stuck around enough to leave some nice window pane lacing down the sides of the glass.
Smell: Floral hops seem to dominate, but there is also a strong grapefruit like citrus in there.
Taste: A nice hop bitterness that is balanced out rather nicely with the same grapefruit sweetness that was present in the aroma. The bitterness lingers for awhile after every sip.
Mouthfeel: It's a bit sticky with a medium body. Great crisp finish.
Drinkability: Like I just mentioned the crisp finish and lingering bitterness just has me wanting more. I'm shocked at how fast I just finished my glass. ABV is low enough for this to be very session able.
Overall this seems to be a very nicely balanced IPA. I'm still new to the genre but it seems this is a great place to start. I haven't been let down by a Bell's brew yet. Definitely need to keep trying their stuff.
