Tasting notes: pours a nice clear copper orange with a small head and thin retention, almost no activity. Strong citrus malts and sour hops on the nose.
Attack: 5/10-sweetness, light creamy
Mid-palate: very sharp bitter, dryness, bitter hops, orange peel, grapefruit with pith
Finish: lingering hoppy bitter, mild gasoline, not the cleanest finish.
Quite sharp bitter grapefruity hops on this one. Not the most gentle of IPAs, beware.
