12oz bottle poured into a shaker pint glass. No date on the bottle.
A- Hazy golden color. Moderate poured produced half finger of off-white head. Decent retention of head. Protein pools formed after time. Minimal lacing on the glass.
S- Aroma is made up of citrus hops supported by roasted bread malt and a hint of biscuit. The hops are primarily grapefruit rind with a bit of orange and possibly peach peel. A really nice balanced IPA smell.
T- I get a lot of grapefruit rind at the front of the taste mixed with some sweeter orange flavor. The end is a mixture of bread and caramel malt and bitter piney hops. For me it is bitter in the front, followed by less bitterness at the back due to the malt. Not much lingering, but what does, is more malt based.
M- Medium body with correct amount of carbonation. Sits easy on the tongue and doesn't produce any puckering on the cheeks.
O- I prefer Hangin' Frank to other Short's IPAs. There is still the characteristic grapefruit kick, but it is subdued better, which makes it an easy drink. The abv is low enough that I could easily drink multiple. Overall, nicely done by Short's.
