On tap at source. Nice, modern tasting room for Black Diamond.

A - The IPA had a gold/light caramel color, moderate head with good legs.

S - Strong citrus bouquet with notes of grapefruit.

T - Lingering grapefruit flavor and an ample amount of tartness throughout the drink and the aftertaste.

M - I met an IPA a bit too bitter for me (can't believe I am saying this).

D - Don't think I am in love with British style IPAs or hops.
