A bit off ipa. On tap at the brewpub. Unfiltered look- nice but sour pear taste that comes off as too ripe. OK for the old hophead try. Tweaking please.

From the source.

A- Draft to a snifter with a medium golden mostly clear body. A frothy semi-thick white crown rises to a finger with fair retention dropping to a medium ring. Whispy shards of lacing stick around the glass.

S- Citra hops atop a light bed of pale grains and slight yeast bread. More on the citrus side of Citra with obvious tangerine and orange leading to slight tropical and stone fruit tones; somewhat dank and grassy.

T- Billed as 7.9% and drinks fairly softly without much alcohol or sweet caramelized sugars coming out. The bold use of Citra works just enough to curtail and balance out those leaving a hop forward profile of orange, tangerine, peach, dank herbs, mint, lime peel and mango. Just a hint of pale cereal grain and esters.

MF- A body right down the middle of the thickness spectrum with a semi-chewy consistency. High end crisp carbonation and a zesty bitter finish. A hint of warming from that 7.9% after some time.

Brings plenty of citrus and juicy grassy hop tones without being a viscous nectar. Finds a balance that I certainly appreciate while still delivering me some bright hoppy goodness.

Good, but taste more like a Belgian IPA.
