bottle into tulip

appearance: cloudy golden orange, slight 1 finger head

smell: lots of citrus, grapefruit, fruity tropical notes, guava, sweet malts, some pine, lemon zest, coriander. The smell on this is truly amazing.

taste: Follows the nose, although just a tad more held back. Lot's of fruity citrus/grapefruit notes off the bat, great floral hop taste, it is complimented by just the right amount of dank piney bitterness to create a very well balanced, and more importantly, juicy flavor packed IPA. Not a hop bomb, but enough hops to satisfy hopheads like myself. The bitterness doesn't linger for too long, not completely destroying your palate. The aftertaste is very refreshing.

mouthfeel: medium to high carbonation, thick bodied for a single IPA

overall: I've been enjoying all of Short's releases this year, most have been spot on, this is no exception. To me this tastes a lot like the Stone IPA, same citrus and grapefruit dominant notes with lots of floral hop action and a sweet malt backbone. Wish I could find this again but i'll have to wait until they hopefully release this sometime in the future. This is a damn refreshing IPA that exceeded my already high expectiations.

Poured from a 22oz bottle, into my Schlafly tulip. No bottled on date, no label either! Bottle was an extra from stawn, who recieved it as a thank you for volunteering at GABF. Thank you! Love the name of this beer!

A - Pours a golden, light amber color with a slight haze & a thin head. Little lacing that stays for most of the glass.

S - Heavy piney, grapefruit & citrus. Solid malt nose too. Great balance in the aroma.

T - Doesn't totally match the aroma but still damn good. Bitter, piney, dry, citrus, pine. Hops are there, and strong, malt carries its own weight & balances nicely. Not getting any alcohol at all. Very easy drinking!

M - Medium mouthfeel, with good carbonation. Smooth drinking!

O - Great balanced APA! Everything is true to style, and very drinkable! Glad I got to try this one.
