Great Lakes Commodore Perry IPA

12oz single.
Very, very light, golden yellow pour with soapy film of a head. The color is really unusual. Minimal lace.
Mild citrus hops in the nose. Some sweetness as well.
Sweetened grapefruit makes up the sharp hop profile. Balanced quite well. Quite a bit of sugary sweetness rather than a malt experience. Very simple beer, but tasty to boot. I’d prefer a lower ABV to make it a bit more sessionable, but having said that, the beer does not show the alcohol very much.
Good stuff if you are looking for an American IPA, but I still prefer the ramped DOWN simplicity of the English version.
