Growler (1L). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Clear golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruits, light malt sweetness, hints of pine and herbal notes. Taste is similar to aroma with more sweetness notes and less fruity presence. Light bitterness. Low carbonation. Light to medium body (a tad thin). Slightly dry. Good IPA. With a little more carbonation, it could have been really good I think.

orangesol (616) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Served on-tap at Ffej of July and later at Al’s of Hampden.

A - Pours pale yellow with a fizzy one finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving spotty trails of lace down the glass.

S - Smells of fresh grapefruit pulp and zest, fresh cut grass, tiny bit of pine and some clean malty sweetness. This one packs a ton of fresh fruit but it doesn’t overpower the rest of the aromas.

T - Taste is quite similar to the nose. Starts off with a nice mix of fresh grapefruit and the grassy / piney hops. A hint of light malt sweetness adds a bit of balance toward the end of each sip but this one is all about the fruit. Finish is bitter, leaving the palate dried long after the finish.

M - Medium-Light body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, easy drinking feel make this IPA super easy to consume. I had no trouble downing multiple glasses of this at the party.

O - While I like both of these IPA’s, I think there is a very good reason this beer won the contest and also kicked first, it is just easier to drink. The grapefruit is strong, just like it should be, and the light body / low ABV combo make it super easy to drink. Excellent work Terry and ffej’s!

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2013
On tap at Al’s of Hampden. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of stinky, sweaty hops, grassy hops, grapefruit, crackery malt. Flavor of grassy hops, sweaty hops, crackery malt, a touch of minerally notes, with lots of grapefruit and bitterness in the finish. Excellent super hoppy beer! 8/4/8/4/14 (3.8/5)
