4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drink within 90 days of May 23, 2013. Served in Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a hazy amber with a white, creamy two-finger head that settles into a nice frothy cap. Nice lacing and legs. Rich smell of grapefruit rind and pine. Citrus pith strikes the palate first and finishes with a heaping dose of pine. Sweet malt backbone balances the bitterness nicely. Medium body with lively carbonation. A superbly crafted IPA that gives the west coast IPAs a run for their money!

On tap at the source as part of ECBT. Smallish pour to pace myself. Attractive clear, filtered IPA with predominantly golden notes. Aroma is reminiscent of almost an imperial IPA. Plenty of hops with pine and floral qualities. Taste is fresh and clean. Remarkably easy to drink with a pleasant bitterness offset by a malty sweet balance. Almost a grassy feel mid sip. Very professional effort. Expectations were high and this meets them with no issue. Coming away impressed.
