_angst_ (3342) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2015
Draught @ OT. Pours very hazy vibrant pale yellow with a small white head that leaves lots of spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is grassy and tiny fruity with crackers, grapefruit juice, freshly cut grass, pine needles, chlorophyll, green peas and lemon zest. Taste is slightly bitter and fruity with crackers, geapefruit, mango, pineapple, freshly cut grass, pine needles and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is soft, dry, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is slightly bitter with crackers, grapefruit, mango, freshly cut grass, pine needles and lemon zest. But green in the nose but flowers in the mouth. Solid IPA!

Tap at the brewery, cloudy gold, lovely melon and citrus nose, fruity and alcoholic, but perhaps a little too dry and attenuated.

peteinSD (1429) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 16, 2015
On tap. Glowing golden color with a large froth of white foam. Pungent, dank hops, bitterness, and mixed citrus and pine in the aroma over a fairly light malt backbone. Taste is sharp hops with light citrus and clean bitterness - malt plays a background supporting role with some breadiness. Smooth mouthfeel. Excellent IPA.
