On-tap in a 16oz mug at a local pizza joint.
A= Cloudy at first, but generally translucent orange-brown, thin white head at first that left a thin ring and ringed lacing throughout.
S= Floral and citrusy, but with a unique dried strawberry note in front.
T= Very pleasantly tart. A very sharp citrus peel hits the tongue at first and mellows slightly through. The most prominent flavor is a refreshing floral arrangement of citurs blossoms. Hint of malt sweetness in the aftertaste. Minimal alchohol presence.
M= Light to medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation.
D= This is a very cool and refreshing IPA that did not lack any character or complexity. Great on a hot day with any flavorful cuisine.
Serving type: on-tap
