on-tap, the Ginger Man in Dallas

cellphone notes

appearance: served in standard pint - body is straw-golden and a bit lighter than many other examples of the style, foamy beige head with nice lacing

smell: pulpy, adequately hopped, notes of lemon zest and white pepper

taste: i liked this IPA - certainly had hit of orange and lemon zest that provided a sharp but controlled citrus taste. This one also came across a bit grassy with 6.6% being hidden quite well

mouthfeel: medium-light

Drinkability: nice

Appearance: Hazy, deep copper in color, with a large white head, no carbonation noted.

Aroma: The aroma is quite complex, with candied orange peel, mild grapefruit rind, minor pine tar hops, and a solid backbone of pale malt.

Taste: Opens with sweet light caramel malt notes, quickly followed by profound citrus and grapefruit rind notes. The strong hop presence is presented gracefully, it overlays, but does not overwhelm the undercurrent of sweet malt. Finishes with a lingering grapefruit rind note.

Mouth feel: Smooth, full, and soft, quite pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Very well-balanced, superbly crafted example of the style, manages to be outstanding, without being "over-the-top".

Sampled on tap at Uncle Billy's in Austin, Texas on October 13th, 2007.
