330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip.

A: Hazy amber, small head which made a quick getaway.

S: Lime and Cascade hop.

T: Lime and grapefruit, high bitterness.

M: Medium body, the hoppy bitterness gave it a coarse edge.

O: A German take on a West Coast IPA, this was dry and bitter, rather than fruity and juicy.

Pours a clear, golden coloration with a medium, frothy head. Smells of biscuity, slightly caramelly malt and citrus hops, with a distinct grapefruit aroma. Taste is a good balance of grainy, biscuity, caramel malt and bitter, slightly floral/grassy hops with citrus accents and grapefruit standing out particularly. Finishes with a medium bitterness and some grapefruit lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.

Perhaps not the best interpretation of a West Coast IPA, the malts seeming a tad grainy and the hops being perhaps just a tad too floral/grassy and not quite resinous enough. It does make up for that with a good bitterness and a strong citrus character though, with a distinct grapefruit presence as well as a good overall balance.

Poured out a cloudy orange color with a one-finger, white head of foam. It smelled of orange peel, floral notes and toasted caramel. Sweet caramel and a very bitter hop presence.

Hazy peach color with off-white head. Aroma has some herbal hops, apricots and slightly grainy malt in the background. Taste follows with the herbal, grassy hop flavors, a light tea note, medium grapefruit rind bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty straightforward​ IPA.
