Spotless IPA (Brewmaster Reserve 2010)

22 oz bottle from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Always interested to try a new Full Sail brew because I think that they brew some really good quality, simple beers.
The nose offers a bright citrus and a touch of alcohol.
The pour is a very slightly hazed, pale orange with a frothy head with mid level density. Some lace.
The tastes are very fruity upfront. Some nice, sweetish orange and other citrus notes at the front end which turn into more bitter citrus notes (grapefruit) on the back end with little metal as well. The sweet and then bitter combo works very well and offers what I would call an internal contrast. The beer is VERY refreshing and feels clean and tidy to me, which, is often a trait with Full Sail.
The bitter, brightness comes through in the aftertaste, too.
Nice beer, good value and something I would recommend to those seeking a clean beer that offers a fruity bitterness. Well balanced and clean.
