Canned on 6/9/14 and reviewed on 6/25. Poured into a tulip. The pour is slightly hazy and light apricot in color. It sports about a finger of coarse white foam. Retention is average. Very little lacing. The nose is quite pungent and piney. Leafy and hemp-like. Lots of grapefruit and a little lemon. The can says it has Columbus hops. It has that white pepper and rye smell of Amarillo.

Medium body and firm feel. Very little malt sweetness present, just enough to support an aggressive salvo of hops. The bitterness is not what I would call "citrusy'' (as advertised on the can). It's more acrid and resin-like with lots of herbal, flowery notes. Sharp bitterness lingers long after swallowing.

Overall, a nice IPA. Although I found it a bit unbalanced, it did grow on my over the course of a 6-pack. It reminds me of SN Torpedo, but with a bit less malt and a bit more bitterness.
