Poured into a pint glass. Thanks for sneaking this one in the suitcase from LA, Brenda.

A: Light gold, opaque with a white one-finger head that didn't last long. Good lacing.

S: Grassy hops and citrus notes. Grapefruit and oranges.

T: A terrific malt/hop balance. Piney hops and bready malts blend well with low bitterness. Grapefruit drops by for a visit. Smooth, sweet and pleasant.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: Even with 2 months in the closet, this IPA held up very well. I hope to try this one again, without 5 other party guests vying for a sip.

Malty, and not quite what I like in my IPA's. Overall it's full of flavor, but not what I like. Orange juice is the big flavor.

Poured a clear gold and orange with a small head. Awesome smell. Juicy and fruity (citrus). Great taste. Very subtle and not over the top. You can taste the carbonation if that makes sense. Could have had several of these.

Didn't share any with my wife.
