BBD 073/14. Clear medium amber pour with a hint of red. Well formed head with lasting lacing. Nice nose of citrus over a light background of pine and biscuit or caramel malt. Medium bodied with a nice smooth mouthfeel - not quite slick. Well carbonated. The flavor profile is quite complex and very nice. It begins with a brief biscuit that progresses to slightly sweet, then effervesces into a tart grapefruit against a light pine. In the middle the bitterness takes the forefront against a lingering tartness. It finishes with a bit of sweetness over a tart bitterness that lingers. Not the usual IPA, but very nice.

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Slightly opaque golden yellow. White head that goes to a lacing throughout the beer.

Smell: A lot of citrus with some hops.

Taste: Not as hoopy as most IPAs. Citrus is there. Malty.

Mouthfeel: Pretty crisp, mild carbonation.

Overall: A decent IPA. Definitely not the best, but noteworthy. Wouldn't go out of my way for one, but I would grab one if available.
