4.22/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a rich golden color with a one finger, creamy white head. The foam sticks to the sides of the glass like glue. After several minutes, the heads dies down to a thin white layer across the top.

S - Crackery malt and pine dominates the nose. There's a little citrus intermingled, but pine is definitely the hopping aroma. I don't get the strong citric traces that several others have noted in their review.

T - Crisp malt backbone with nice pine and floral notes. Heavy grapefruit citrus dominates throughout the sip. Has a strong bitter grapefruit finish that lingers what seems forever! What I find very strange is the floral and grapefruit nuances were not showing up in the nose. Strange. I sampled this in a brew pub so there could have been other things in the air that muted those particular flavors.

M - Semi-dry finish, lighter side of medium body, mild carbonation on the tongue and pretty crisp.

D - I really enjoyed this IPA. I really prefer the bigger D-IPA's, but I have to say this was really crisp, refreshing, not huge ABV, very drinkable, and I could easily consume several of these in one sitting. Moylan's is one of my favorite craft brewers and it's spot on what I would expect from a West Coast single IPA beer. Very nicely done.

Serving type: on-tap
