look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A: Pours a beautiful clear ruby red. Enormous and frothy offwhite head. Head fades very slowly; top notch head retention. Quite good lacing as well.
S: Lots of sweet citrus/grapefruit. A little pine and lots of caramel sweetness.
T: Hoppier than the aroma, oddly enough. Loaded with grapefruit. Big, bold grapefruit crispness and bitterness everywhere. There is a pine element backing it up but it's mostly overpowered. Pine shows up more towards the finish and in the aftertaste. Nice sweet caramel malt makes itself known primarily in the finish as well....just prior to a decent wave of bitterness kicking in. Bitter pine and grapefruit floating around between sips.
M: Medium bodied, sticky hops.
O: Very nice IPA. Doesn't smell as pungent as you'd expect but the flavor is quite hoppy and bitter with just enough caramel to back it up and keep it from getting too unbalanced. Relatively simple but well done regardless.
