Serving Type:355 mL Bottle

A- Deep Amber colour with a 2 finger off-white head with excellent retention. Lots of lacing on the glass.

S- Tropical fruit (guava, passion fruit) and grapefruit from the hops dominate the aroma.

T- Same as aroma but with an extremely bitter finish. More bitter than a lot of DIPA's that I've had. Tasty but only in small hauls.

M- Medium Body and Moderate Carbonation.

O- An excellent example of a Citra Hop IPA. Beautiful tropical fruit and citrus flavours come through but this brew seems to have an overly bitter finish. Still a great brew but could be so much better with a slightly less bitter finish.

355ml bottle. Bottled on 2015-04-17.

A: Clear amber. Poured a lot of foam, medium retention.
S: Pineapple. Moderate citrus. Slightly piney.
T: Pineapple and grapefruit. Toasted malty. A touch of sweetness. Medium high bitterness. Pretty rich in flavors.
M: Moderate body. Medium carbonation, refreshing but not sharp.
O: Great IPA. Drinkink it second time at non-fresh date, but it's rather good and rich.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a plastic pint cup, this beer pours a medium to dark, clear, amber color with a slightly off white head about an inch thick when first poured that settles down a bit, and when it does settle down there are clumpy swirly mounds of foam that are sticking up on the beer's surface. Thy eventually settle down. Good lacing. Strong cirrus hop aromas along with toasted, biscuity malt notes. The taste is pretty much the same, with a nice citrus, resinous hop bitterness upfront that gives way to biscuity, caramel malt sweetness. Good balance of flavors, but the hop bitterness does tend to dominate a bit. Has a slightly crisp, but mostly very smooth, creamy, frothy medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Easy to drink in the good way. A pretty solid IPA here all around.
