The last on air tasting. Bittersweet...no not the beer...the event.
Smell-Citrusy. Grapefruit perhaps?
Taste-That same smell is the first thing that hits your lips. From there, the piney hops pop then fade into a malty finish. It's a nice transition.
Mouthfeel-Lighter than you'd expect from an IPA...also smoother. Goes down real easily.
Drinkability-I don't think I enjoyed the first offering I had from Laughing Dog but this is definitely something I could get get into. Lots of hop taste without being overwhelming and I enjoyed the finish.
