Pours a medium amber-gold. A little cloudy/hazy. Mediocre head. Soapy bubbles that require a rather hard pour to build up into a respectable layer of foam, and even then, it fades to an off-white sheet after a minute or so. Big hoppy aroma. Lots of grapefruit, pine and grass notes, and they tend toward the sweet end of those flavors. Mild caramel malt background. Everything blends together really nicely. Very tasty IPA. Lots of hop flavor throughout the beer. Good bitterness, and it never really gets bland. Low to medium malt sweetness, just a clean caramel note. Mouthfeel is medium-light. Pleasant hop oiliness. A round mouthful of flavor. This is a really good IPA. It's easy to drink and has lots of hop flavor. On a sidenote, this bottle doesn't seem to fit my notes about two years ago. I remember a better heard, brighter aromas and a bit more bitterness in the finish. Not sure what's going on with that.
