Beer is fairly clear, woody amber in color. The orange-white head yields very nice sheety lace once it fades. Smell contains grapefruit, orange, leaves, wood, melon, musky floral scents, and lightly caramelized toasty grain. Taste is prickly with brisk bitter hops + fine carbonation. Flavors of buttered bread, caramel, pine, grapefruit, and lemon rind. Texture is resiny, slick, and fluid. Quite easy to drink even with the hoppy bitter punch.
I would like more juicy mouth-watering aroma + flavor hops, but that aside, this is a solid IPA.
