Poured into tulip glass:

Pours a nice slightly hazy orange-amber color with a frothy, 2-finger, eggshell-colored, off white head.

Smells of grapefruit and some tangerine with piney and peppery notes mixed in.

Has a mostly grapefruit flavor with some herbal and piney notes. There is a bready malt backbone that gives way to a decent hop bitterness in the end. The finish tastes of bitter grapefruit rinds. There is a decent hop presence in this one, but the malt keeps it from bursting forth the way it otherwise could. Despite that, it is still quite good. The dry finish in this one keeps you wanting to come back for another sip.

Medium-bodied, slightly resiny brew that is very drinkable. The malt really tones down the hops and makes this one very easy to slam several of.

Overall, this is not a world class IPA, but it is very good. If you are looking for a pallate- thrashing hop bomb, this might not be for you, but it is still quite good and you wont be sorry you tried it.

A: burnt orange with a light tan head. Can't wait!

S: toffee and malt. Also piney hops!

T: toffee and burnt malt. Also some floral notes, dank hops, pine, and caramel.

M: a nice sudsy feel. Medium and buttery.

O: not what I was expecting in a good way. It drinks like an English pale which is awesome. I like the malty touch.
