I detect a fairly strong hint of grapefruit. I enjoy it. It's definitely an IPA. I just enjoyed one with some Doritos. It's pretty good. I'm running out of things to say. I don't understand why my review must be at least 250 words. But seriously, it's a good beer.

Color- cloudy apricot. Medium head.

Aroma- apricot pit, dry, with hint of grapefruit.

Taste- A refreshing brew! Starts with apricot notes, then transitions to a buttery mid-body, finishing with a dry yet mild grapefruit bitterness.

Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 6/30/2013.

BBD 8/14. Light amber (golden) pour with a haze. Massive head with well retained lacing. The nose is apricot with other tropical notes over a light pine. Almost medium bodied and smooth textured with an above average carbonation level that imparts a nice effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. It begins with a blend of hops noted in the nose with the citrus ones the primary focus. In the middle, pine comes to the forefront over a light biscuit sweetness. The finish is almost crisp and ends with a pleasant bitterness of pine and grapefruit rind with a touch of pepper. A very good, but not quite outstanding, IPA.
