A- Nice copper color with finger width head, which settled nicely.

S- Smelled very good, hints of grapefruit, lemon and pine.

T- First impression was that it was very light and bland, but the taste settled in and was pretty pleasant. Big time citrus flavor.. all I could taste and smell was grapefruit.

M- Pretty easy to drink, low alcohol percentage was nice.

O- Not a bad IPA overall, not one of my favorites however. I've had a few IPAs from this brewery and liked them a lot more.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a relatively clear deep golden orange in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some apricot highlights. The beer has a half finger tall frothy off-white head that reduces to a medium mottled patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of tropical/passionfruit, citrus/orange, and citrus/grapefruit hops over the top of a slightly lighter amount floral hops and caramel malts.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate amount of caramel malt sweetness that is quickly overtaken by the assortment of moderate to strong hop flavors - I detected tropical/passionfruit, citrus/orange, and citrus/grapefruit. There is also a light hint of floral, melon, and herbal hops as well towards the finish. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness that linger slightly.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slick/oily.

O: Definitely an enjoyable IPA and one that was pretty easy to drink - the alcohol was well hidden and the hop flavors were excellent. I enjoyed the mixture of the New Zealand galaxy hops with the west coast style IPA and American hops. Definitely one to get again.
