Appearance: Reddish copper, a bit of an orange hue. Very good retention.
Aroma: Sweet Malty balanced by grapefruity citrus. Very pleasant aromas, throughout the pint.
Taste: Sweet toasted caramel, bitterness strikes hard near the end of the sip. The bitterness from the hops lingers on your tongue. The finish feels very full. Mouthfeel is nice.
Notes: This beer is very solid. I haven't seen it in the bottle in NC lately, but it is a regular on tap at the Flying Saucer in Raleigh. And I'll usually default to it when I'm drinking there.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into my snifter at fridge temp, with a generous pour, yielding a solid fruity looking orange color and a spiffy 2 finger white head that falls slowly. Perfect look to this one.
Smell is fresh grapefruit, lemon, and orange. Also detecting a peach smell, and maybe some pineapple. Very fruity and inviting. Almost perfect.
Taste is a very mild sweetness and bitterness at first, then the sweetness dies off and you get the bitter IPA notes. It doesn't taste as fruity as it smells, but this is a lower alc. IPA. I get wet hay, pine resin, and citrus notes.
Feel is spot on with plenty of carb and a light mouthfeel.
Overall I like this IPA better than alot of pale ales of the same alc content. Its very drinkable, yet its downside is it's quite expensive at 6.50 bomber.
