3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, at brewery, RBWG 2010. Pours a clear orangish body with a minimal wispy white head. The nose is a mix of citrusy hops and some tropical fruit notes over a lightly caramel and toasty malt base. The flavor is moderately bitter with a nice citrusy grapefruit hop bite that comes on a bit stronger than the malt. A little sweet in the middle, but the finish is lingering bitterness. Fairly full slightly sticky mouthfeel with moderate soft carbonation. Not the best IIPA, but not bad.

Draft. Pours an orange body with a white head. Really hoppy citrus tones, passion fruit, pineapple very pleasing aromatic character. A drying hop resinous body with a fruity sweetness, and just enough warming to relax ya, really great stuff i thought.
