Draft at Hopscotch.

Pale orange, opaque and murky, thin layer of white foam. Some degree of lacing in the glass.

Aroma was of light grapefruit and buttery biscuit, ale yeast distracted a bit from the the hop character.

Taste is much the same, a moderate bitterness with a buttery diacetyl note and light grapefruit and bready malt notes. Medium bodied, sort of dull and slightly off. Overall not the best IPA, not sure I'd ever drink this again.

Pours a nice, soapy, off-white head. Intense, bright, citrus hop aroma. Turbid, dark-straw color. Starts with a bitter, intense grapefruit hoppiness. Builds into a medium-high bitterness. Malt peaks through near the finish; bitter citrus rind.

I really like this one. It's got great aromatics, and it is pleasantly hoppy without being overwhelmingly bitter.

simcoe and citra are the hops on display in this aggressive ipa. my first brew from pig minds comes as a bit of a surprise. there is a lot more bitterness here than expected, not used to citra in this role so much, and in fact get citra first and simcoe second, both in smell and taste, which is opposite of the citra finished beers that dominate the marketplace today. hazy pale orange color to this, good inch of fluffy white head, but it dies out in just a few minutes. woody pine resins from the simcoe finish off the swallow, where a more lemony citra dry hopping type hop profile started me off. different for sure. nice carbonation at first, but just like the head, it seems to dissipate out in short time, and i am left with a flatter beer.long lasting bitterness on the close. good not great.
