Thunderhead IPA and Raising Funds

Meterman: It must be hard doing these beer reviews week after week.
Flavius: Truth be told, it is hard drinking world class beers and giving my unique, expert opinion.
M: What is the hardest part?
F: It's a financial hardship; these beers are expensive. That is why I plan to have a charitable golf tournament as a fund raiser.
M: Why not have a bottle drive? Isn't it illegal and dishonest to ask for donations so you can buy beer?
F: I never let morality or the law stand in my way of good beer.

Thunderhead IPA (Pyramid)

Ratebeer 3.25 66th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +3

Nothing new here; straight up hoppy grapefruit nose. Taste is as expected; a welcome hoppy bitterness with a citrus/grapefruit start and a barely noticeable caramel malt sweetness. For those keeping track, it is rated at 67 IBU.
Aftertaste +2

This is where this one is different; the grapefruit lingering is almost creamy and effervescent. It lasts for over 30 seconds

Alcohol Content +1 6.7%

Nice and light for a crazy hopped IPA.

Value 0

It was good but I would get the Green Flash or the 90min IPA instead.
Ingame Enhancement +1

Still more singstar damage

Overall 7/10

This was an excellent hoppy IPA, but there are better ones out there.
