4.15/5 rDev -7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
had it on tap today at slows bbq, served in a goblet, and got a free bells button with it, went with a fellow BA
appearance - a golden yellow, with a head that was about a finger head on it that remained for half of the beer, moderate carbonation
smell - nose was grapefruit and hops up front, this melded into a strong citrus and a mild maltyness, a slight sugary smell was present
taste - taste started off less bitter than i remembered it being, this was my first time having it on tap, a moderate hoppy bitterness that moved into a strong citrus that overpowered the hops, moving into a mild sweet maltyness, and left a slightly bitter hoppy flavor, far more balanced than i remember it beings but i also learned to appreciate DIPA's since last time i had it
mouthfeel - nice refreshing mouthfeel not to thick but not too thin, carbonation helped to lighten it, made em want to take my next sip
drinkability - very drinkable and at 10% the alcohol wasnt prevalent, easy to put down many of these and not realize it until you stand up to relieve yourself
Serving type: on-tap
