look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Poured from a bottle into an Ithaca Pint glass straight from the source.
Appearance: Pours a deep golden color. Not as Amber colored as many IPA's. 1 finger sudsy head that sticks around for a minute or two. T
Smell: Grapefruits and floral scents are dominant. Not as piney as a lot of IPAs.
Taste: Grapefruits again. Classic taste for an IPA. If you arent an IPA lover, you may still like this beer. It's got a strong malt character. If you do like IPA's, then you'll likely LOVE this beer. Classic bittersweet IPA flavor.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, but it still goes down smooth. I'd say it's light bodied for the style. Refreshing is what I think of when I gulp this.
Drinkability: No question about it, even at 8% I'd down a few of these no problem. There is no trace of the alcohol in the taste and that for me is a + to drinkability when it comes to IPAs.
Overall: I had it first at the brewery in Ithaca. I loved it then, and I can honestly say it is just as good from the bottle. Really wish this was available in TX.
Serving type: bottle
