4.23/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: One finger head that sticks in loose splotches. Slight carbonation floating from the bottom. Trace amounts of settlement at the bottom of the glass.

S: Strong floral, honeysuckle, and caramel aromas. A very fresh smelling beer that is reminiscent of spring time.

T: Mix of pine and citrus hops off the first sip, malt sweetness interluding, and finishes with a dank, earthy bitterness and hints of pepper. An interesting interplay between sweet and sour flavors.

M: Medium bodied, a bit creamy, and finishes with slightly bitter and dry. Pretty easy drinking for a style that is typically heavy and over drying, especially given the ABV.

O: A lighter take on the double IPA, but still retains the complexity typical of the style. An above average beer that really with its unique aromas and mouthfeel. There was something missing in the taste department that would have set this beer apart.

Tennessee

4.33/5  rDev +0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass.

Pours a nice hazy golden color with a small but fairly thick head. Very good lacing.

Smells like citrus. Lots of grapefruit on the nose. Subdued malt smells as well, very faint.

Taste is nice and hoppy. Good citrus flavor from the hops. Not overpoweringly hoppy, but still very hoppy. The hops are somewhat made milder by a slight maltiness. Maybe even some less acidic fruit taste as well.

As far as mouthfeel goes, this beer was much creamier than I was expecting. With as much grapefruit as it had in the nose I expected a very crisp IPA. Not gonna lie, I'm a big fan of malty beers, so I loved the mouthfeel.

Very good beer.
