look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a light translucent amber with deep oranges. There is about a half finger of pure white head that fades quickly, leaving a frothy layer along the edges of the glass.

S: The nose is pine and grapefruit. It's harsh, bitter, biting, and slightly onion-y.

T: The initial taste is sweet and malty with a big blast of pine and citrus in the back end. Basically this beer moves effortlessly from malt to huge hops. Big bitter finish.

M: Medium bodied beer. It's an easy drinker, but it's packed with flavor. It starts wet, smooth, and sweet. It finishes bitter, spicy, and dry.

O: This is a good IPA. I have had many beers that I like much more, but this is a very good beer.

My first time having this beer. I think it's a fairly solid DIPA. Has a good malty backbone with nice citrusy hops. There is an element of bitterness that is a bit perfumey... not in a good way. Makes the nice blend of malt and citrus a bit harsh.

The scoring of this beer is based on my experience but I do need to add my wife's very simple and curt review here... and she does appreciate good beer, especially IPA's. "This beer tastes like butt hole wrapped in metal." Classic. :)

Glass used: nonic pint glass

Appearance is a cloudy orange with a thin rocky white head and lacing.

the nose is a strong grapefruit that is coming from cascade hops I'm guessing.

This beer has a strong yet sweet grapefruit taste with a malty backbone. Bitter at first with a sweet finish.

Mouth feel is light bodied with a fizzy carbonation and an almost dry texture to it.
