10oz. pour into a Duvel Tulip at Hawthorne's Cafe in Philadelphia.

A: Translucent amber body with no tones. Thick, white, frothy head that lingers and produces tons of spotty lacing.

S: A perfectly build, slightly citrusy IPA.

T: Grapefruit dryness jumps out heavily as undertones of Lemon back it up.

M: A slight dryness and relaxing level of carbonation in the forefront with nothing overdone and an easy tingle from hop resins.

OVERALL: Blind Pig is a beautiful IPA. It's easy on the stomach, has great head, and is very juicy, but not overbearing. This is what IPA's were like before the "Hop Bomb" era. Thin, balanced, and drinkable with a perfect amount of citrus spiceness and all of the tonal flavors you'd expect from a West Coast IPA and the IPA style in general. Very 2007-2010.
