The plain label belied a bold, tasty beer. Seconds after opening the bottle, I smelled an intense hop aroma that was like a freshly-cut orange. Unlike many Western USA IPAs, this one balanced the hops well with smeet malts. Combined with the hefty carbonation, this made it surprisingly drinkable, though it was still a sipping beer. The grapefruit hop aftertaste lingered on my tongue longer than I’d like, which is always a danger with IPAs. 6.5% ABV in a 22 oz. bottle pointed to a tipsy good time.
