3.85/5 rDev +7.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
On tap in a pint glass.
A- A nice clean golden color, fluffy head, plenty of lacing. Very bubbly.
S- Mild fresh floral esters, some hop fruitiness. Slightly sweet malts.
T- Some sweet bready malt and more citrus, grapefruit hops flavor than the mild aroma had indicated.
M- Crisp and fresh, slightly oily. This beer is well carbonated, so much that I checked other reviews to make sure 'it wasn't me' or a faulty tap line. The IBU and abv are right.
O- I enjoyed this beer, the carbonation cost it a 1/2 point in this review. A better bubble balance and this would be more drinkable, sessionable, even.
Serving type: on-tap

4.01/5 rDev +11.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden color with a nice head; quite a few strands of lace line the glass on the way down
Smell: Citrusy grapefruit with a hint of biscuit
Taste: Biscuity, up front, with a quick shift to the grapefruity hops; clean finish, with a lean to the bitter and fruity side
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: Either the recipe has changed or there are a lot of old bottles out there but this beer is surprisingly good when fresh; I wouldn't spin it as an English IPA given the flavor of the hops in my sample but it definitely leans toward the East Coast with the balance factor
Serving type: bottle
