Just Outstanding, what an appropriate name. Two weeks old acquire in a trade.

Excellent Amber color. nice size head, good lacing.

Very hoppy smell, nice.

Taste is very good. Simco hops over all else. Slight make sweetness. Very well done.

Great ipa.

Pours into an imperial nonic a deep orange tinged brass color with a large blooming slight off white head atop that leaves multiple broken rings of lace as it settles ever so slowly.Aromas of grapefruit rind and herbal hops over top of biscuit malts.Pretty outstanding flavors with sharp grapefruit and resin-like hops winning out over sweetish caramel/biscuit dough maltiness.A big hopped up left coast ipa,as good as I thought it would be.

Growler from Joe Canal's, Iselin.

Golden copper body, good clarity, but with a little chill haze, topped by two fingers of dense white foam.

Fresh, big fruity nose, grapefruit, oranges, apricots abound.

Solid semi-sweet malt foundation coats the tongue. Juicy fruits burst out. Big bitter bite. And it all ties together in the end.

Medium mouthfeel, solid, smooth, with a dose of prickliness.

I don't know if it lives up to Just Outstanding, but its damn good.
