Pours a very pretty beer: orange with auburn and ruby highlights, under a solid off white head that leaves thick lacing.
Smells very mildly of grapes, bitter herbs, bready malts, and grapefruit.
Tastes of bitter herbs, old mint, bland and overripe fruits, grapefruit pith.
Nice mouthfeel - slick with a vigorous and lifting carbonation.
Rather drinkable at 5.8 but I wont go for another.
Sexy looking beer but no substance. This is not my kind of IPA: the English, German, and American hops do not seem to combine well, nor are they being very diplomatic with the malts. And then, this seems like Boston Lager in IPA form. The catchy name got me - but never again, even for 1.35 a single.
