look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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.

Growler from Short's pub poured into a pint glass. Pours a cloudy orange color. Smell is a mix of bitter orange peel and pine needles. Taste a bitter mix of orange peel and pine. There are some other interesting background flavors like peaches and fruit cocktail.

This has tons of flavor with a very low alcohol content.

Bottle poured into the trusty MID shaker pint.

A- Clean, golden body. Light carbonation. 1-finger, off-white head settles into a thin film. Awesome stick.

S- Oh, those are fresh hops! Lots of grapefruit. Kind of pineapply, tropical fruit for sure. Is this gonna be a hop bomb? Sugary-sweet and doughy background presents itself a little later.

T- Considering the initial aroma, it's nicely balanced off the bat. Toasted bread and a solid citrus punch. Marmalade turns into a grapefruit zest at the finish. A nice slap in the face as you think it's all done. A little aspirin kick. Hopping might get a touch long by the end of the glass.

M- Moderate-full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Light hop tingle. Bone dry finish.

O- This is a winner. A straight forward interpretation of a style for Short's. Ver fresh. While quite hoppy, it stays just within the balance I crave from a Midwest IPA. I would definitely buy this again. Sadly, I think it may be in short supply (no pun intended).
