This was a good beer. It was on the darker side in color, good head retention and a wonderful floral, spicy, and tropical fruit bouquet aroma. The taste was much the same. I truly enjoyed this beer, as I have most of this brewery's beers. Apparently the "sour" beers are all the rage with these guys, I need to give that one another chance. But for now the IPA's and APA's I have tried have been top notch. Happy that this brewery is in my neck of the woods so to speak.

@ Ridgewood

Mostly clear deep, coppery orange color under a big, frothy off-white head. Chunky patches of lacing. Aroma comes across as hoppy with a decent grainy sweetness beneath...nice, but not a very "deep" smelling beer. Citrus zest, spicy hops, earthy pine, toast, and just a hint of perfumy grapefruit here and there. Flavor is bitter citrus and leafy hops. A fresh, but not in-your-face grapefruit juice finish. Crisp, medium bodied, with some texture. Nothing memorable, but a decent beer overall.

Serving type: on-tap

Tulip at Ridgewood in Raleigh

A: A little darker than your standard IPA with sticky lacing. One-half inch white foam head on pour.

S: Musky fruit - ripe sweet citrus, grapefruit nose. Smells like candy.

T: Fruity hoppy mess with a mild malting backbone. I've seen the comparisons to Stochasticity and this is clearly better balanced than the Stone version. Lingering ripe grapefruit / rind finish.

M: Nothing to complain about here. Appropriate viscosity and and smoothness for a single IPA.

O: Not something I would seek out, but this seems to be a nice one-off sampling beer unless you are really a sucker for the grapefruit.
