props to IanSpindler for including this in a random trade a while back
A - slightly hazy golden, splenty of rising carbonation, one thumb of creamy white head retained nicely with plenty of sticky lacing
S - light citrus, fresh grass, bubble gum, mild biscuit, and buttery bread, well balanced aromas
T - gentle tropical citrus with some mellon, fresh floral and grassy hops, buttery biscuit malt support, this is definitely a treat
M - refreshingly carbonated and relatively light, super crisp up front, somewhat savoury with mild dry bitter finish, brightens up the palate without attacking it
O - this is incredibly tasty while being delicate and balanced, super sessionable, and all around outstanding brew

Appearance is a clear yellowish copper color. This offering is slightly effervescent with a finger of fluffy head that seemed to linger forever and left rings of lace behind reminiscent of a nitro-tapped beer. The malt profile seems solid, if not remarkable and the hoppiness is good for a single IPA.
This offering does suffer from an odd trace of booziness which makes it less drinkable than some higher ABV DIPAs that I’ve sampled in the past.
Serving type: on-tap
