A- pours a slightly pale golden hue, thin lacing and had maybe a quarter inch head which subsided after a few minutes.

S- a light and sweet ell, this beer reminds me if sugar and grapefruit combined. It's a pretty complex smell, honestly.

T- this has a complex tropical taste with a malty hint at the front and a great bitter hop end. Grapefruit is present the whole way through. It has a dank and hoppy flavor to it. It definitely has floral and grassy notes in there as well. Malty and hoppy finish.

M- medium bodied with just the right amount of carbonation to it. It leaves just the right amount of bitterness to it at the end.

Overall- this beer is AMAZING. plain and simple. Easily one of the best IPAs I've ever had. It has a great taste, smell, and aftertaste. Carbonation and the body is on point. This has everything I want in an IPA and MORE.

4.19/5  rDev -3.2%

Pours a slightly hazy golden with copper highlights and a frothy cream head that dissipates into a thin layer of foam and leaves sheets of lacing.

Grapefruit and resin dominate the aroma, with tropical notes adding complexity.

Flavor reveals a lightly toasted malt base that accompanies the grapefruit underpinnings nicely. Notes of lemon and mango add complexity. The finish is moderately bitter. Malt actually plays a factor in this, which I enjoy.

Body is a touch on the light side, if anything, though that may be accentuated by the high carbonation. Alcohol warmth is noted.

I like the malt presence in this one, and the flavor and bittering hops are almost at an even keel.
