3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Brewhouse Bar & Grille, Helena, MT.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-hazy orange color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white head. Stringy smooth lacing stuck and then slid adequately into the beer.
The smell had a huge burst of grapefruit up front with a light caramel underneath but balanced out as it warmed.
The taste copied the smell and lead to a sweet to bitter grapefruit aftertaste and a semi-dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and somewhat sharp but nothing overbearing. Good.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good APA that I would have again.

Yummy grapefruit and thick mouthfeel. Enjoyed one before some huckleberry pie at West Glacier Restaurant near Glacier NP.

Thanks, Ryan. Fairly light with a bit of grain and moderate bitterness. Could use more hop aroma and flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Bert & Ernie’s. Pours murky green-gold, thin, though persistent, off-white head, solid lacing. Nose is very spicy citrus hops. This smells better than fresh homebrew! Very complex grapefruit/stonefruit/juniper interplay. Flavours are fresh and snappy, with lingering malt and solid whole-cone hop character. A shade light on the bitterness, but a very well-crafted, lighter interpretation of a PNW IPA. Neat shit.
