3.68/5 rDev -4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: deep gold, great clarity, nice layer of tight-beaded off-white foam w/ good retention, lace
Aroma: big citrus bouquet of grapefruit, kumquat, and lemon rind; hint of passion-fruit; light malty caramel
Flavor: mild malt sweetness that is quickly overtaken by a grapefruit peel hop flavor and a yummy bitterness soon after; more passion fruit and just a slight hint of grain;; finishes dry with a lingering bitterness
Mouthfeel: medium-light body, mellow carbonation, crisp texture
Other comments: I had not had the opportunity to try Citra hops before, so this is a good beer to get a sense of that hop which is even more grapefruity than Cascade!
Serving type: bottle

A: copper brown. Plenty of lace that sticks. Inch head that dissipates pretty quickly.
S: fresh, citrusy, and floral. Hops.
T: moderate bitterness. Rounded pretty well. Grapefruit and citrusy with bitterness that lasts.
M: pretty high carbonation. Nothing wrong here. Not watery or too light.
O: not my favorite ipa but its definitely not the worst. Not too bitter. A more rounded ipa. Don't regret getting it that's for sure.
Serving type: on-tap
