A moderate pour yielded a finger of head on top of a beautiful copper colored body. Head is cream colored, dissipates in minutes, and clings to the glass nicely, good lacing.
The nose is a hop heads delight. Pine and mandarin oranges are paired with a slight aroma of grapefruits. I also get a floral tone and a bit of malt in the background. Smells fresher than a frog.
Pine and grapefruit are the easiest detectable hop flavors, beyond them there is a nice general bitter, but it kind of melds with a nice floral quality. Sugary sweetness and malt are strong flavors once the beer washes over the tongue.
Medium-bodied beer, it starts out nice and bitter, then comes into a strong sweetness. The end is dry and bitter, but not as much so as it could be. The sweetness in between is a little much for the style though.

Pours an unfiltered orange with little foam and a bit of lace. Aroma of pungent grapefruit and leafy hop. In the taste, fairly bitter and coarse hoppy flavor and some citrus. Nice semi toasty malt backbone supports a good wet hop character. Nice bitterness and citrus. Medium bodied with a strong carbonation. Overall this is a solid IPA.
