Mugshot IPA

Wow, I really, really, really like this beer.
Pour is a mid-orange/copper with nice clarity, a little chill haze and a head that although present, could be better – HOWEVER, I watched the barstaff at Taco Mac pour this, and know that they did not do a good job so I suspect I could get a better appearance than they managed.
Nose and tastes are SUBTLE! Imagine that! Very light fruits with some subtle, sweeter fruits like peaches, but a healthy dose of sweetened grapefruit giving the true IPA moniker. Very easy to drink, and a beautifully balanced IPA that will not assault your taste buds, rather it will caress them.
Gentle, appropriate carbonation, and despite the poor pour, a good amount of lace on the glass. Finish gives a kiss of more bitterness and a lingering fruity feel. Some hoppy burps, too.
Delicious beer that restores my faith is beautifully, gentle, crafted beer with a subtle and non-aggressive edge. Delightful
