On Tap @ Societe
12-08-12

10oz pour

A: Super clear golden amber body that is effervescent with tiny bubbles forming a tight off-white cap. Light persistent head with some real clingy sheets of lace down the glass.

S: Profound aromas of grapefruit and gooseberry. Real fruity with mango like tropicals and a bit of catty herbals. There is a light caramelized malt cracker to the background. Overall a really great nose with a fresh tropical hop medley.

T: Bold fruit flavors of gooseberry, grapefruit, and bitter melon. Pine with some restrained white grape and herbals. Real nice but a little less tropical than the nose. Malt is dry cracker with a soft suggestion of caramel. There is an upper moderate level of resinous hop bitterness and just a slight alcohol kick in the finish. Not distracting however. This is really nice and perfectly sweetened. Not terribly mind blowing flavor wise but showcases some real nice craftsmanship at practicing balance.

M: Moderate to lower feel overall with a nice crisp drying lift in the finish. Carbonation a touch on the higher side with some prickly bite. A bit of puckering residuals of hop oils and sugary bits.

D: A really nice offering. Awesome nose and the balance of flavors here are impeccable. Very drinkable with some nice “new” hop flavors. Has a Citra/Nelson thing going on but not in excess.

Recommended.

Had on draft at Societe

A-Pours a clear, light golden straw with a nice finger of white head that thins to a skin. Great lacing.

S-Great aromas of tarragon, lemon pepper, and sharp grass are up front. Tropical fruits, pineapple support.

T-Taste has a lemon, grass and grapefruit first. Strong bell pepper in the middle. Some grapefruit, dough and spice. Light malts. Ending is dry with lingering malts.

M-Light tacky body with a light to medium acidic and faintly sweet palate. Mild carbonation.

O-Overall a great IPA. Very smooth and tasty!
