@ Trophy

Foggy reddish orange color with a white head that sticks to the glass in creamy, stringy lacing. Mild hoppy aroma…smells Galaxy/Mosaic-like once I get my nose right up next to it. Lime, subtle passion fruit, and lemony perfume, becoming more like fresh dried hop flowers the longer it sits, while also increasing in astringency. Flavor is fresh and fruity hops: mainly melon, tangerine, and pink grapefruit leading to some lingering grass and citrus rind bitterness. Well carbonated – too much so – so things are a bit overly aggressive and fluffy in the mouth. Medium-light bodied and dry. A pretty good fruity, green IPA here. I’d like a little more punch from the hops and lighter carbonation, but it seems like a quality hop profile.

On tap 12/3/16, so not retired. New England style American IPA at 7% ABV. Excellent!
