4.83/5  rDev +17.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

On-tap at Plew's Brews.

appearance - nice transparent golden, white head, sticky retention

smell - hop forward, citrus and grapefruit aromas

taste - amazing hop flavor! generous citrus and grapefruit profile, west coast style ipa

mouthfeel - medium body, perfect carbonation

overall - didn't expect the vast hop flavor, has the hop level of an ipa with the tamer body of a pale, such a great brew

Had on tap at Belmont station. This is a 5.5% abv pale ale.

Appearance- Not-quite clear golden straw color. Thick, White head that turns to a film 4.5/5

Smell- Pine resin hop smell. Grassy goodness. 4.5/5

Taste- Citrus and pine all at the same time. Strong bitterness in the backend. There is a small amount of sweetness from the malt. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel- Perfect for a pale. 5/5

Overall- Such a good beer. I would say this is a borderline IPA. This was made with all citra hops. Very well done. It is fun to taste a single hop beer. Especially for a homebrewer. 4.5/5
