Punk IPA

First a grapefruit flavor comes to my nose before I could take the first sip. This flavour makes me kind of curious about this IPA. Its taste is very hoppy, actually fruity as well, but also kind of fizzy. Even seems like the beer is bubbling out of my nose.

Don't we forget the foam stability - which is some 25 to 30 seconds? Not really stable, huh?

In the lower end I still taste some yeast. Probably storage was a little too long.
This beer nearly has no body at all. It's glued together by hops, yeast and water. Where da hack is the barley? Did they forget it? Didn't they know it is needed?

A beer designed for hipsters - but definitely not for a beer enthusiast or sommelier.
