Pours a crystal clear pure golden color with an antique white head. The head is quite stubborn, contributing to the aesthetics of the beer. It has primarily a grapefruit nose with some pine breaking through. The bouquet is vibrant and it doesn't fade as the head dissipates. It has a big, thick, full mouthfeel with the perfect amount of carbonation to accentuate the entire experience. The usual pine and grapefruit flavors, but with an extraordinary balance. I've begun to notice that with these IPAs, the key component is balance. Nose, mouthfeel, flavor, finish--this one has it. It all works well together like a well-oiled machine.
