3.85/5 rDev -1%

A: Golden brown with an impressive white head. Great retention.
S: Smells familiar, like several other common IPAs of this style, with CTZ hops and crystal malt very evident. A little Summit hops in there also? Lots of pine/grass in the aroma.
T: Sweet caramel malt, big doses of hops….floral and grassy up front, with some grapefruit. Also getting a little spicyness in the flavor. Finishes with a brisk, dry bitterness.
M: Feel is pretty smooth for an IPA – medium body with soft carbonation. I like it, but suspect many would prefer it to be more lively.
Overall, a quality beer. I particularly appreciate the smooth mouthfeel. You can do better at $10/6pk, but when in Duluth, I’m sure I’ll make a few more of these disappear.
Serving type: can
