It has an obvious smell of pine and grapefruit with a sweet malt character as it warms. You get the pine right up front and then the grapefruit and sweet malt combine to eventually end with a bitter grapefruit pine on the back of the tongue. Its a very straightforward beer that has an obvious good quality to it. A definite west coast ipa and a damn good one at that!
