3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Resinous grapefruit with a bit of a pungent, cattiness and pine. Color is dark copper with a thin-white head. Flavors similar to aroma, sweet with a good amount of hop flavor manifested as pine and a bit of citrus fruit of some sort. Flavor is hop-forward, but there is a lot of sweet caramel malt with some toasted bread. I like that the body isn’t too full,.. it’s a little thin but I think that’s a good thing in this beer. It’s flavorful but drinkable.

Pours a deep golden color with a medium cream-colored head. Piney aroma. Starts mildly bitter on top of some dried fruit flavors. Good finish but a bit of a one trick pony. The flavor is consistent throughout. Just a hint of the homebrew tang. Not bad but not great.

Clear amber pour with a single finger head. Big hoppy aroma that is slightly flowery and a little dish soap-esque. Taste is fairly light and not overly interesting. Caramel, with a bitter finish. Lace present. Light mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served amber color with tons of carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the brew. Upon serving there is a thin white head that rather rapidly fades to leave a moderate level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is strongest of some citrus smells of both a bitter grapefruit hop as well as an orange aroma. Along with these aromas are also some lighter smells of a bready and doughy aroma with some other light smells of pine.
Taste – The taste begins with a rather bready flavor with a decent showing of some grapefruit hop right upfront. There is also some caramel taste and a bit of orange at the start with the caramel later fading some as the taste moves onto the end. The grapefruit all the while grows stronger and is joined by a light earthy and pine flavor. In the end, the mix of flavors that is left on the tongue leaves a very pleasantly hopped but smooth and somewhat crisper citrus flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the style and citrus flavor of the brew the feel is very nice as it maintains a great easy drinking feel, all while being still able to support all the nice flavors well.
Overall – This was a very enjoyable IPA and one I will certainly seek out again. Quite pleasant!!
