Great Raft is making North Louisiana proud. Not exactly a craft beer bastion, Shreveport is quickly upping the competition or Abita in terms of quality. Grace and Grit is bright orange in look, aroma, and taste. Velvety smooth and moderately hoppy. Love the brew, love the label, can't wait to grab another.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Copper, dark golden hue. Head dissipates quickly. Little lacing.

Smell: Balanced- this won't be a hop bomb. A touch of diacytel.

Taste: Better than the aroma. Lots of citrus. Still some diacytel, especially as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Very drinkable. Maybe the best attribute of this beer.

Overall: Not sure if it should have fermented a bit longer to knock out some diacytel (and bump up the ABV a half point or so). Very glad I tried it, and probably one of the better Louisiana IIPAs.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: poured into a tulip to a nice and clear golden orange with a three finger slightly off white head that is very dense and leaves excellent lacing with decent retention
S: smells of pine and citrus with some tropical fruits and a slight sweetness
T: taste is oily piney hop with some tropical fruit and a little citrus. Malt plays a good supporting role with the slightest amount of caramel sweetness. swallow is slightly toasty with another blast of oily piney hop.
M: this beer is medium on the mouth with soft but adequate carbonation and a resinous finish that coats the mouth and keeps things from drying out.
O: Well crafted with superb balance and great flavors. Not up to par with Ruination, Dorado, Sculpin, Pliny or Myrcenary but it's still a good beer.
