Hop Goblin IPA R&B

There is nothing wrong with an IPA like this one; your nose is graced with heavy, floral hops. It is similar to the smell of grapefruits and assorted bitter citrus. You get a very sweet caramel up front with a very assertive hop bitterness immediately afterwards. They blended nicely together; there was over 45IBU for those keeping track.
There was a long lingering of malt sweetness with an astringent, bitter hoppiness to it. The grapefruit flavours lasted until the next sip.

This was great local flowery IPA. I would get it again.

Grid Defense might cause me to loose all my friends. Who needs friends when you get level beating satisfaction.
I would class this one as an excellent grapefruit, flowery IPA. Not quite as over the top as a Stone.
