On tap at Oasis. Served in a pint glass.

A- Light yellow-orange body, nice one finger white head with good retention and nice lacing. Looks clean and refreshing.

S- Nice citrus, grapefruit aromas with a bit of grainy pale malt sweetness. It otherwise smells like grapefruit. Very nice smelling beer.

F- Juicy grapefruit, citrus peel, a nice caramel malt backbone that balances out the grapefruit. For the most part, this is a very tasty grapefruit-forward IPA.

M- Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Bitter zest but not too bitter. Reasonably drinkable.

O- Wish they would brew this on a more regular basis; this is a very tasty IPA on tap. Plenty of grapefruit to satisfy the die-hard west coast IPA fans.

2/16/15 (Bottle) - Strong blonde pour with minimal head. Aroma was distinctly orange and lemon, two favorite flavors. Beer somewhat bitter, tastes strong going down and I enjoyed the taste. Texture is lighter and smooth, carbonation minimal. Overall, it's a very good beer and I look forward to future bottles and other Founders offerings.

A-A lavish amber, blonde appearance

S-A rush of hop aroma delivers grapefruit, orange, lemon character

T-One of the best IPAs I have ever tasted. The fine malt character becomes evident first, caramel notes and a sweetness. A wonderfully brilliant citrus taste lights up the taste buds. For an 86 IBU beer, it maintains a wonderful taste profile that's eminently citrusy and somewhat piney but it's not over the top bitter.

M-Mildly carbonated and with a feel that's not too bright or hot.

O-The magnificent intensity of the hops delivers such an excellent tasting beer. However, while the hop intensity is something you'd expect from an Imperial IPA, it does not lose its balance.
