3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: A very juicy fruity (grapefruits mainly) hop-fix. Unbalanced, simple but quite drinkable.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Partly cloudy blonde body with a big beige head.
In long: Lots of grapefruit on the nose. Taste is more of the same. Very juicy with lots of grapefruits, some mangos and some citrus fruits. The grapefruit character of this beer is amazingly close to biting in a real grapefruit. Forget about caramel maltiness or anything else. This is hop juice galore. Yes it is a an unbalanced hop-fix but yes it is refreshing and pleasant. Such a nice gentle likeable IPA should have been named after Dr Seuss, not Edgar Alan Poe.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours opaquely cloudy orange gold with beige head. The aroma is toast, mango, citrus and pine. The flavor is very toasty with bitterness almost immediately. Not as fruity as the aroma. Some dark pumperknickel like malt lingers there, too. Dry, earthy finish.
