5/16/09 review from my notes.
A: Pours a rich golden yellow with a 2" off white custard head. Thick and creamy topping on a great looking glass of beer.
S: A rich citrus, piney hop aroma is released when you open the bottle and once in the glass that's all you can smell. Sweet grapefruit - fantastic smell.
T: Unfortunately the smell seems more powerful than the taste which seems a bit on the light side. There is a bit too much bitter at the end for my taste.
M: Also a bit lighter than expected but has great carbonation for the style.
O: Overall this is a good IPA but not the best. PtE has this beat on all accounts and for Alesmith I think that I prefer a fresh Winter Yulesmith - not sure why this one is rated higher?
