A: Amber gold with a slight haze, bottle conditioned, yeast sediment in the bottom. 1” foam cap dissipates fairly quick to film, produces excellent lace.
S: Citrus and bread.
T: Very fruity, juicy, plum with citrusy hop flavors dries out on the finish, a little bread in the background.
M: medium low carbonation, medium body a touch chalky, some light astringency.
O: Big flavor packed into an American IPA.

This personally isn't my style of choice for an ideal beer, but I will admit that as an IPA this is well made for the style

Not a pleasant beer too look at, very cloudy but a nice white head. Very citrus grapefruit aroma, starts off with a smooth taste and has a very bitter after taste. Great for anyone looking for that beautiful grapefruit bitter taste. My only wish was the taste was as delicious up front as it is with the aftertaste.

Fruity aroma kind of like peach.Lots of settlement in bottle before pouring. Label says unfiltered and unpasterized. Initial taste bright slightly fruity but not sweet and a little earthy. Carbonation a little higher than average.Smooth hoppy flavor with slight bitter aftertaste.

Substantial sediment; pungent grapefruit aroma; resinous, malty arrival, malty and tart; hefty mouthfeel. Not so refreshing, bottle maybe past it's prime (no date) bought 8/15, reviewed 9/1/14.
