look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
22 oz Bottle, poured into a Tulip Glass.
A - Slight hazy gold-orange, 1 finger of a white foamy head, looks very refreshing. It says enjoy by 9/10/13 on the bottle.
S - Very sweet but at the same time I get strong hops. Grapefruit, pineapple, maybe some grapes, very citrusy.
T - Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, citrusy, lots of grapefuit, oranges, pineapple, well balanced with sweet malt coming through to kind of hold the bitternes, bitter but not overpowering. Very pleasant.
M - Very smoth, refreshing, a little more to the bitter side, definitely the hops win the battle against the sweet malt but still a very well balanced beer.
O - By not being my favorite style at all, I was very surprised by this beer. I don't know if the weather has something to do with this but I'm really enjoying this one. I definitely get the hops but right after I get this sweet malt that kind of balance the flavor. Do not taste the 8.5% abv at all. Very refreshing. Definitely one of my favorite IPA's so far, just behind Stone Ruin Ten and Samuel Smith IPA. Very good.
