A-Poured into a pint glass it has a clear golden color with a 12" of off white thick and chunky looking head.

S-Smells of light,sweet,citrusy and clean soapy scent(yes soap,good soap)Floral aroma reminds me of a greenhouse.

T-Light and sweet hoppy flavor backed by a huge malt finish with more sweet hops lingering around to remind you this is a IPA.

M-Medium bodied beer with a clean,crisp feel,slighty dry finish.

D-This is one of the best IPA's I've had,not overly hoppy but enough that their presence is known.This is a must try for any beer fan.

A - Amber and pretty transparent, has a nice glow to it. Sticky white lacing with some fizzy carbonation in the pour.

S - Fresh grapefruit that gives off more of a bitterness than the typical sweetness, which is balanced out by citrus. A touch of the malt comes through as well, gives a base to the hops. Nothing complicated going on in the aroma, just a nice, inviting hop character.

T - Fair amount of bitterness. Up front there is a combination of pine resin and grapefruit. Lots of citrus comes through in the finish, grapefruit being predominant along with hints of peppery spices. The finish leaves a distinct pine resin that sticks to your throat.

M/D - I quite like the feel of it. The body is medium with a little bit of carbonation that lasts throughout.

O - I thought I had reviewed this by now, surprised that I haven't. I usually pick up a 6 pack whenever I'm in the US and see some that is only a few weeks old. It's nice that a solid IPA like this is affordable and usually fresh in stock in Michigan. Just a nice and solid IPA, especially for a beer of its availability.

The appearance is a clear, golden color with a head that pours very thick and dissipates quickly. Even thought the head was thick in the beginning, it was present for the entire time at about a quarter of an inch.

The smell is hoppy with citrus notes, but not too powerful.

The taste is a strong, classic hop flavor. Not too piney, not too much citrus, but right down the middle of all three flavors. The finish is bitter like a medium strength IPA should be (or is expected to be) but not over powering.

The mouthfeel is just fine. It is not carbonated, not thin, and goes down smooth.

Overall the beer is a solid IPA. It is smoother than most IPA's but has all of the excellent aroma and flavor qualities of a classic IPA. Try it, it is worth it!
