I was fortunate enough to get this beer through the latest BIF.

This IPA pours a slightly hazy golden color with a quarter inch of quickly dissipating white head. This ale, canned on 1/13/15, was obviously fresh and was very enjoyable. I would say the aroma was mostly grapefruit, maybe orange and bit of breadiness.

Taste wise, the beer shines. Nicely carbonated, not overly hoppy/bitter. I am guessing Centennial or Simcoe hops but not sure. Finishes quite dry for an IPA with a slight bitter aftertaste.

Overall, a very enjoyable IPA that I would love to make a "go-to" brew. Easy drinker but tasty, very tasty. Someone send me some cases :D

Over all a smooth ipa but a little to dry for my pallete. One or two with food maybe but not an all night drinker.
