Can't stand the aftertaste this leaves. Prefer others. I think this beer is overrated by the crowd. Founders Dirty Bastard has the same problem.

L: Pours a cloudy, pretty golden yellow with a light tan, two-finger head with large bubbles. There is minimal lacing and the head doesn't stick around.

S: Smells citrusy with moderate tropical fruit up front with some light malt at the end. Very light and refreshing smelling. Pine is present, but very mild.

T: Much more grapefruity and piney than the nose indicated. Very little of the tropical fruit I smelled; just a little bit in passing. Very piney/ resiny at the end.

M: Light and bubbly, but still with a sticky resin viscousness that sticks around. A little over carbonated for my taste, but it's not overwhelming.

O: Definitely hop forward. Not *as* in your face as some American IPAs, but it's still very hoppy. Not one I'd give to a new IPA drinker who is still figuring Hops out. Very nice overall and I'd certainly get again.
