Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip

A = a coppery amber color with crystal-like clarity. sports a 1 finger head after a gentle pour which subsides to form a thin white film of tiny bubbles. leaves thick lacing down the sides of the glass.

S = pine, grapefruit, sweet and aromatic tropical fruit, with a sweet malt profile playing in the background.

T = bitter grapefruit, touches of pine, mango and pineapple, a sweet malt and a touch of alcohol as the beer warms a bit and the glass begins to empty.

M = medium, slick, very easy to drink

O = my (current) favorite AIPA and one of my go-to beers, as well as having the privilege of being the first IPA I ever tried.. Never fails to disappoint, especially when I can get it really fresh. Everyone should try this one at least once, highly recommended.

This is my favorite beer. My roommates and I live in Chicago, so we have many an opportunity to sample all varieties of delicious brews. This was my first IPA, and so now my taste buds are permanently spoiled. The grapefruit smell is close to the inside of a baseball glove for sheer joyful aroma.

Those against hops, keep away. Those that want to drink a manly beer and then go chop down a tree or something, have a two hearted ale.

P.S. If you're a 'liter'bug like me, read Hemingway's two short stories from which this brew gets its name. They're as stellar as it's beverage namesake.
