Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – Served a lightly hazed golden amber color with a one finger white head. The head had a decent level of retention but eventually fades to give a good level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is a nice blend of fruit and hop. The fruit is a mix of tropical aromas of pineapple and mango with hints of tangerine while the hop aromas is dominated largely by a grapefruit smell. While grapefruit is the strongest hop smell there is also a lighter earthy and floral note aroma as well. While the aroma is rather light overall for an IPA it is quite pleasant.

Taste – The taste begins with a breadiness mixed with some of the tropical fruit and some grapefruit hop flavors. While sweeter in the beginning, the hops start to win out over the tropical fruit sweetness and the beer begins to bitter ever so slightly. Hop flavors of an earthy nature join the grapefruit which, in the end, leaves a nice balanced hop flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is just above average in creaminess. The carbonation level is quite average. The creamy body is nice for the malty and the hop flavors and makes it quite smooth on the tongue.

Overall – A wonderfully tasty IPA. Very smooth flavor transitions and a great flavor profile. One to go to again and again.
