Review from notes

Appearance: Nice golden color, good white head

Smell: Very citrusy and sweet, grapefruit and lemony hops

Taste: Grapefruit, hoppy bitterness, biscuity malt, and some earthiness

Mouthfeel: Medium body, full carbonation

Overall: Good but not outstanding. A good standby at Karl Strauss

Love the sweetness in this beer, peach, pineapple is a strong force in this beer. The smell is sweet. Not very piney, very sweet. Better than expected.

Appearance: a light, clear amber-gold colour with a thin, frothy head. Minimal retention and lacing.

Aroma: definite citrus and pine on the nose.

Just good a good IPA

A - Pours a light golden colour with a large white head that dissipates a little.

S - Massive citrus including sweet pineapple, lemon, grapefruit. Very sweet.

T - The sweetness aromas seem to disappear and I get more of a mild bitterness, some grapefruit and lemon at the finish.

M - A little over carbonated although light to medium bodied

O - Actually don't mind it but lacks a little in full flavour for an IPA. Aromas upfront though are impressive.
