Poured a two fingers of head on a fairly clear straw colored body.
The aroma is a great mix of grapefruit, orange, touch of lemon and grain.
The taste is bold grapefruit bitter with lemon and a slight orange sweet finish. Nicely done.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable and bold.

My first time trying Blind Pig
Bottled on Date 09-06-13
ABV% says 6.25% not 6.10%

A: Looks very light and refreshing, nice clear golden amber mix, with a nice fluffy head that slowly dissipates and leaves light lacing around the glass

S: Very Piney, followed by some slight bready and caramelized sugar malts, and finishes with some nice light citrus, all combine very nicely to the nose

T: Nice taste of piney hops hit first followed by light bready and caramelized sugar malts, and finishes with a little bit of citrus hops and a nice light crisp bitterness to end, get a little pineapple and a very small amount of grapefruit, very nice combination of flavors

M: Very light, crisp, and refreshing for an IPA, very very slight oily or creamy feeling to it which makes it even smoother

O: Outstanding IPA, easily one of the best I've ever had, I was expecting it to be good based on the ratings, but after trying it I feel this beer is definitely under rated, I went a little out of my way to get this and I will gladly do it again
