This, to me, is what the standard for IPA's should be. This IPA has a great hop flavor, great floral /citrus/grapefruit nose and good carbonation. Its the perfect balance of flavor and weight. Some IPA's get that 'heavy' taste ,(too much hops, not enough carbonation) this one doesnt but still maintains the exceptional hop flavor that IPA's should have. Altough this isnt my absolute favorite IPA ever, its in my top three. I recommend this to everyone trying their first IPA.
Great orange color on the pour, good foamy head and the aromas during the pour are fantasticly pleasing.

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
