On-tap at the brewpub in Alpine. Taster glass.
A - standard IPA coloring, maybe a bit lighter yellow. Some lacing and good retention.
S - Smells floral and a bit uninviting. Not sure how I feel about it, but I couldn't know the horrors to come.
T - Tastes just off. The rye flavor and yeast selection just makes for a blah taste. I didn't enjoy it one bit and couldn't finish the 4 oz taster. Not super bitter, but it did taste a little like i was eating a flower.
M - Mouthfeel was above average. Not that I could really notice through the flavor that I hated.
O - Didn't like it. Sorry guys, I feel like this one is WAY over rated.
Serving type: on-tap

What can I say that hasnt been said already, this brew is so well balanced and full of amazing grapefruit aroma and amazing clean citrus taste that it lives up to all the hype.
I enjoyed a bomber while we pulled off the road in De Luz Ca for a picnic about an hour away from where this is brewed.
Paired with deviled eggs and microgreens this beer blew us all away. Did I say well balanced? Amazing nose full of nelson grapefruit and nice carbonated bite with a very unique slightly diesely oily overtaste. Hops are the star of the show here with just enough malt to smooth it out. One of my new favorites. We hope to go to the brewery soon and try it off the tap. *** Highly recommended
