3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A- Body is a very cloudy, translucent rusty amber hue. Pours with a 1-2 finger foamy white head that eventually fades to about 1/2 finger and retains well from there. Some lacing left behind in the glass.
S-This has a nice, bright, hoppy nose. Citrus (grapefruit) hops come through the most with some earthy hops also. Citrus is really the dominant scent but maybe a hint of sweet malt can be picked up underneath.
T-The flavor upfront is a mix of citrus hop flavors and bitterness, deep in the background is a pale malt sweetness. Some earthy hop flavor comes through for the finish, which is very clean. All that is left to linger is a hint of citrus flavor and a very minimal residual hop bitterness. Overall flavor is more subtle than most IPAs.
P-Low to medium carbonation and smooth body. The hop oils are there but subdued.
O- The lighter character of this one makes is very tasty and drinkable. This is a pretty good IPA. I’ve been impressed with these first 2 offerings from Mad Anthony.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber, slighty hazed with a large frothy taupe top that rolls away slowly. Aroma of heavy citrus led by fresh grapefruit mixed with some floral hops and a touch of dusty sweet malt. Taste of heavy grapefruit and mild malt with medium grapefruit on the finish. Somewhat bitter and definitely one dimensional which detracts from it a little.
