In short: A tasty, crisp, super refreshing, fruity and floral blonde IPA. Nice!
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy yellow blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: The bright nose shows lemongrass, grapefruits and floral notes. Taste is crisp with a hay-like maltiness, a ton of fruity hops (grapefruits, mangos, oranges) as well as a strong countryside flowers sensation. Meidum-strong bitterness that is never aggressive. Good attenuation. Uber-refreshing. I really love those refreshing blonde IPAs. This is one pint I didn’t want to share. I hate it when a friend asks me to take a sip from my pint and I tell him to stick it up his ass and he’s all insulted even before I can tell him what “it” is.

A golden ale with a thick creamy off white head . A pleasant floral aroma with nice orange notes and a bit of menthol. In mouth, a classy I2PA with intense bitternes, a light grapefruit and menthol. Medium bodied. On tap at brewpub, Inbièrenationale IV, May 2007.

Draft at the brewpub - Poured a fairly cloudy darkish orange-amber in color with a solid white head. Some nice lacing. Aroma is very strong of citrus-grapefruit and floral hops. Flavor is an explosion of hops... citrus, floral, pine. Some malt balance to mellow the hop bitterness. Dry, bitter finish. I like this!!

Cloudy golden pour with a medium white head. Incredibly intense aroma of hops that feel like pineapple. Solid flavor of fruity, resinous hops with a strong, lasting, bitter finish. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Lightly hazy orange in color with a medium off white head, that lingers nicely and leaves heavy lacing down the glass. Aroma is a huge burst of resinous simcoe and amarillo- grapefruit and orange with floral and some dry woody notes. The taste is hoppy as all hell with sticky grapefruit, mango, and some floral attributes...but somehow remains pretty smooth, some light pale malt sweetness comes through but is never obtrusive. Moderately bitter throughout with a dry, sharp woody bitter finish. Excellent.

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2007
On tap at Alchemist. Beautifully fragrant grapefruit and resin nose, sweet and juicy. Light golden-amber clear with foamy off-white lacing head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium-mild carbonation. Good malty sweetness with juicy fruity hops throughout. Light alcoholic notes. Bit of caramel and biscuit. Grapefruit and resin. Smooth hoppiness with sharp bitter finish; though not harsh. A bit of floral notes in there, too. Bitter but smooth after. A nice IPA.
