16 oz can. Pours hazy copper gold with a big fluffy white head that retains well and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is caramel malt with a little fruit and resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel biscuit malt with big resiny ashy hops and a little green apple. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, too much biscuit malt with ashy bitterness.

Thanks Mike. This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a hazy/cloudy golden color with a two finger white foamy head that softened to a glaze of stringy lace. The aroma had some lemon to orange pulpy sweetness, light floral hops, some toast and a little bit of biscuits. The flavor was somewhat sweet with a touch of bitter and a clean hoppy to malty aftertaste and finish. The palate was medium bodied with a fairly smooth touch to my tongue. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt fine. Overall, pretty good AIPA worthy of trying again.

Can. Cloudy golden body with a huge, fluffy off-white head. Aroma of lemon, orange, floral hops, toasted grain, grapefruit, orange. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Nice flavor profile (considering how many IPAs are now citrus based) though the hops could be brighter and the beer crisper.

On tap at the brew house. Light golden color with clingy lacing. Nice tart citrus and hop aroma. Lots of grapefruit. Goes down really smooth, with some spice at the back of the throat. This is a really good IPA, I’m impressed!

rosenbergh (11753) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2016
Draught at the Right Brain Brewery, Traverse City, MI. Clear golden color with a small white head. Pleasant fruity hops, mild bitterness, cookies and malt in the aroma. The flavor is grapefruity hops, dryness, moderate bitterness and dry malt. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice citrus IPA, very drinkable, though a touch watery. Decently done. Fresh can from Holiday Market Royal Oak.

An easy drinking IPA. Some grapefruit citrus and carbonated tingle. Very average flavor. Quenching and somewhat refreshing.

Pours an orange-copper with a foam white head. Aroma is caramel malts and citrus and pine hops with some resin. Flavor is some citrus hops and some caramel malts. Finishes dry, with an unpleasantly high bitterness. This doesn’t do anything to stand out from other IPAs and is less pleasant to drink than others that don’t stand out due to the level of bitterness. Not terrible, not great.

Overall everything you want in a great IPA. Aroma and taste of grapefruit stands out in the beer
