Poured this into my Stone Levitation glass.

Slight haze, but still brilliant gold, puffy white tall head that lasted quite a long time. As it fell, it got puffier and left a beautiful lacing down the glass.

Smells of grapefruit, ruby red, pink and white. There is also tangerine, lemon and orange. It is a cornucopia of citrus aromas. There is an ever so slight tinge of sweet caramel malt.

At first sip there is an onslaught of citrusy hops flavors. All those in the nose but even more complex. There is a bitterness of grapefruit zest and grapefruit pith. There is also a bit of piney, oily hops here as well. What little caramel and biscuit malt comes through is quickly between back by the intense hops flavors and high level of bitterness.

The body is medium and the carbonation is medium and tingly. The hop oils coat the mouth.

This is one hoppy fresh hop IPA. The drinkability is good, but, I can't believe I am going to say it, the hops and bitterness are so high, I might not be able to drink more than say 3 glasses of this.

Hazy light orange hue. Enormous white head that hangs around. Aroma is citrusy and clean-smelling. Taste isn't as fresh as I hoped - granted, I'm several months late. Slightly piney, some citrus, mostly just subdued except for bitter finish. Mouthfeel is bubbly and sharp, crisp. Wish I got it fresh.

The first time I ever tried it on tap, I fell in love. It's hard to find (especially off season) on the east coast, but I literally look for it every time I go to the packie. So fresh tasting with a strong hoppy flavor but surprisingly light. Obviously better on tap in season but it doesn't fail to satisfy year round.
