4.05/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Medium Copper/Amber with lazy but persistent carbonation. Two fingers of a thick sweet creamy head head leave nice lacing swabbed bed down the glass and a small cap of foam persists like the crown of a cappucino.

Aroma: muted grapefruit like a quality perfume.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, silky, elegant.

Taste: upfront a slightly caramel malty backbone, is paired with a mild floral hoppiness. then the grapefruit hops flash by with a clean finish.

Notes: A very subtle and refined IPA, I have had some APA's that were hoppier than this but that is not necessarily bad. This is a very well made beer that goes down easy and tastes good. The 6% abv is deceiving and very well hidden. I actually didn't notice the abv until I was writing this paragraph and I must say I am a little dejected as this is such a sessionable beer. I could drink this all day long.
