Ibrew2or3 (7910) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 20, 2013
33cl bottle pours with a clear gold body that has copper hues and supports a thin white head of foam. The aroma offers up some spicy somewhat yeasty notes followed by fruity malt sweetened citrus as well as a mineral note. The taste has a decent load of malt sweetened citrus hops creating a citrus gummy bear to sweet hard candy like sensation. Quickly the hops do get increasing bitter to midway and into the finish to the point of becoming pleasing tart grapefruit notes to a touch of lime. This achieves a tasty citrus hop bitterness with only echoes of the initial sweet citrus hop flavor into the finish. Darn nice IPA.

IPA pours out of the bottle in a light cloudy deep golden colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops and citrus. Taste of fresh hops, citrus, herbs, berries and mandarins. There is a certain lightness in the character of the beer which I really like. Very easy to drink, highly enjoyable.
