Had a bottle at The Trappe Door in Emmaus, PA for $6. Ah nice, I see what they're going for—that super-hoppy, light bodied West Coast IPA/DIPA. Right up front there's a huge juicy punch of floral pine resin with grapefruit and a little tangerine. The flavor actually mellow out too much for my liking before the finish, but I'm still a fan. I'd say it's about on par with the Southern Tier 2XIPA. The body here is light and crisp, as intended, and it makes for a hop juice beer that's not astringent or tongue-bindingly bitter. Definitely give this a shot.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a lightly cloudy golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that diminished slowly, down to a large puddled film and medium collar with excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was pleasantly sweet with light grain malts, citrus and floral hops and a mild earthy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit and tangerine), tropical fruit (mango, pineapple and papaya) and a very light hint of alcohol.
The taste started out lightly sweet with notes of caramel and citrus, but quickly became moderately bitter with a bold fruitiness and a strong alcohol presence at the end. The flavor lasted for a nice long time following the swallow, with a hoppy alcohol taste left lingering on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body with a creamy, dry texture and a carbonation that was a subdued medium in intensity.
Overall this is a really tasty and well balanced IPA. I don't know if it is the rice that made the difference, but it is put together exceptionally well making it a very enjoyable drinking experience...
