Beer that's been in a growler for a week

The beer pours a very nice and creamy white that lasts a bit but dissipates quicker than what I would have liked. The head does not dissipate completely and still leaves a film after it has dissipated from the middle. The beer itself is a very clear orange amber.

The beer has a nice citrus and sweet smell to it. The orange rind and citrus hops dominate the smell but is lightly balanced with sweet malts.

The taste is similar to the smell but hoppier and with different types of hops. The hops taste is closer to a grapefruit rind with hints of citrus and a slight sweet malty backbone. Despite all the hops, the beer still seems to have a hint of sweetness to balance out the flowery hops.

The beer is very smooth and medium bodied but feels lighter. The carbonation is biting. The IPA has a surprisingly clean feel to it with some light carbonation.

Overall, an extremely impressive IPA and one to be proud of. I would say that this IPA should rank among the best and will as soon as the brewery grows a little bit more.
