4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Honestly, my favorite beer...my deserted island beer. Pours a reddish hue, with tons of frothy head. Vigorous lacing clings to the glass. It has intense aromas of serious grapefruit, spice, citrus, and pine. The flavors are unbelievablely balanced, even in this unbalanced IPA, showing a strong malty forefront which melds well with the intense hop backbone...just the perfect amount of malty sweetness presence. The finish seems to last minutes on the palate, as the sting of your tongue gently fades...not to mention, itís only 6% abv, which is a feat in itself to have so much complexity in such a small abv.

Can, at the Capital Grille in Minneapolis. Deep amber colour, quite some crystal malts in here. Very hoppy, really quite bitter. Hop taste actually a bit muddled, a bit generic hop and lots of them. Nice enough but a bit one dimensional.

From a can at the White Sox v Red Soc game in Chicago. Good to see they have good beer at US Cellular Field. Interesting deScription that it uses Scottish malts for a hop-forward beer. This makes an interesting combination. Darker in color than most single IPAs. Clean flavor with nice malt presence and bitter finish. Iíd still take Two-hearted over this one, but this is pretty damn good beer.

There are a lot of IPA in Seattle. Not me of them are as good as this. Smooth (for IPA), citrusy, light sweetness. If youíre not drinking a blonde this summer, drink this! With or without food!
