look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- Clear amber topped with a medium off white head. Head falls quickly to a cap and leaves some nice rings of lace on the glass.

S- Mild grapefruit, citrus, and pine resin

T- Notes of tart lemon immediately that transitions to a bitter sweet grapefruit note that carries on till the finish. The finish is a balance of caramel malt and bitter hop notes with a lingering final bitter hop note.

M- Medium in body and in carbonation. Not as clean as the first two in this series there is some hop oil and a slight viscous feeling left on the palate.

O- I've tasted this variety of hop before as a blend in lots of other beers, nice to have it as a stand alone variety. The 6% ABV is hidden and not over the top for the style. Interesting experiment from Boston Beer to deconstruct an IPA into it's hop components and let us taste them separately and then together over these six beers. Mikkeller does something similar with their single hop series and I applaud the fact that Boston Beer has taken it a step further.
