3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a golden amber color with a big white head and some spotty lacing.
S: A nice bit of sweet tropical fruits and citrus on the nose along with a substantial caramel malt base. A fair amount of grapefruit notes and subtle pine.
T: The flavor tends toward the sweet side initially, mostly caramel and some brown sugar. The hops come shortly after and have a nice bitterness to them. Some slightly bitter and slightly sweet grapefruit, too.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation. Kind of heavy and chewy for an IPA.
D: For a sweeter IPA, I found this one to actually be quite drinkable and enjoyable. A very nicely balanced beer.

Draught at Opal Divine’s Freehouse, Austin, Oct. 18. Pours a clear deep gold with a small frothy white head. Nice hoppy and fruity aroma, a bit sweet as well. Flavour of resiny hops, grain and bready malt (7-). Decent bitter finish. Average bodied. I liked the aroma slightly more then the flavour but overall it’s pretty good.
