12 oz pour into a pint glass on tap at the Pisgah taproom.

L – Medium amber color with a 1-finger cream-colored head. Decent retention with some patches of lacing. Clear with lots of bubbles.

S – Lots of caramel malt and lots of grapefruit-forward hops. Very balanced.

T – Follows the aroma nicely. It starts off sweet with caramel malt and some sweet orange flavors and then progresses to a nicely bitter grapefruit hop finish. Again, very balanced for an IPA.

F – Medium-bodied, good carbonation, a sticky, chewy, and mouth-coating feel, and a bitter and dry finish. Bitter grapefruit hops linger for a nice while.

O – This is a very tasty, very balanced, and very drinkable IPA. I really have nothing else to say about it. It’s just a very solid beer and a great example of a nicely-balanced IPA. Cheers, Pisgah!
