12oz bottle poured into Mr. Pint Glass.
Appearance: Pours a beautiful amber-gold color. Lots and lots of bubbles! Small head that leaves a nice lacing on the side of the glass as it goes down.
Smell: A very definitive grapefruit smell to this one! A little bit of the Pine-sol smell to it as well. If I just bought a 6 pack of floor cleaner, someone's gonna hear about it.
Taste: Now that honey taste comes out of NOWHERE. Definitely hoppy, but not HOPPY, if you will. This is much more mellow than, say, New Glarus' IIPA. It doesn't punch me in the mouth quite as much as I was expecting, especially given that it's a double IPA like the NG. Still really nice, very well balanced.
Mouthfeel: Smoove. Very smoove. Crisp. Clean. Scores great points here.
Overall: If this turns out to be Pine-sol... it was definitely a very delicious beverage. I'm glad I got a 6 pack of this stuff. Although... it is just too drinkable...!
