Served pint at the brewpub this afternoon.

Poured a subtle copper color. Very much transparent. Head of white foam that quickly dissolved. Nose was essentially non-present. Picked out just a slight hint of hops. Flavor was very subtle for an American IPA. More akin to an English style with an amped up hop bill but not particularly bitter or powerful. Malts quickly overpowered any real bitterness. Medium mouthfeel.

I have a hunch this would be quite nice if served on cask and dry hopped.

a: poured into a standard pint glass, golden amber in color with a decent layer of white head

s: lots of raw citrus rind hops on a benign body of pale malts - nothing more than a support structure for the grapefruit hop profile, nice and pungent

m: light-medium in body with a lively carbonation

t: much like the nose, a lighter pale malt body holds loads of citrus pith hop flavor, grapefruit, light metal, strongly bitter, unbalanced towards the hop end but tasty all the same

d: a little acrid or harsh at times, but a nice ipa that's easily drinkable

growler sourced from the brewery by a friend, enjoyed while camping streamside in the Pisgah forest

consumed again August 2012: very nice, solid ipa, scores similar
