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.
