Bottle poured into my stemmed Allagash
This beer pours a deep orange color with a nice big white head that hangs around for a bit. The head left good lacing on the glass as it receded. The aroma is a punch in the face of citrus hops. God that hop resin smells delightful. The flavor is pretty much non-existent for the first second or two the beer hits my mouth, but shortly after a nice citrus hop flavor (and a flavor much more than a bitter on this beer) takes over. It has a wonderful mellow grapefruit flavor. In fact, that is exactly what this beer tastes like, a lovely grapefruit early in the morning. The mouthfeel is pretty typical of the style and fits well.
This is a very good IPA. But then again, there are so many good IPA's out there, I feel it is getting hard for them to actually be very distinguishable from each other. I think allegiance and support really effects people's reviews.
