On-tap at Beachwood BBQ. From notes:
Appearance: Poured with a large head. Lacing is impressive, sticky stuff, good for the style. Body was a rather meh gold color - no harm no foul.
Smell: Huge grapefruit/citrus on the front end, followed by pine. Slight toasted corn malt quality on the very back end, however, detracts. Still, the hop flavors are excellent. Malt balance is there, too, but I was surprised and disappointed to find the corn flavor.
Taste: Grapefruit, malt sweetness, and pine. As my notes put it "Just a damn fine IPA." Really shines here.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, slight astringent.
Drinkability: Endlessly drinkable for retaining such strong hop flavor.
Serving type: on-tap
