To end IPA weekend...
Amber color with an one finger head with low retention.
Nice grapefruit aroma with notes of pine and resin and slightly toasted malts on the background.
Elegantly bitter (although it has a good 75 IBUs) and fruity taste, predominant citric flavor with notes of grapefruit, flowers and pine. But still quite malty. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with low carbonation, 7% ABV is well hidden.
Very well crafted. A very pleasant and balanced IPA, relatively delicate and flavorful, but that knows how to bite. Gods’ juice.
