12 oz bottle into pint glass
Appearance - Hazed over and golden, nice sticky lacing left behind and solid head retention
Smell - Very grapefruity up front mingling with other various citrus notes, pine, some malty sweetness and dank fusel notes
Feel/Taste - Feel is medium bodied and super smooth, gentle carb, very drinkable. Taste follows nose - lots of hoppy grapefruit and citrus going on up front with a bitter bite that doesn't go overboard, some dank hop funk going on, trails off with a perfectly balancing caramel malt sweetness.
Overall - Just a superbly crafted IPA: a heavy dose of citrusy, fruity hops blend and balance deftly with caramely malts, while never getting the sensation of being too sweet. Extremely drinkable, this is a classic and a go-to.
