The beer arrived a clear amber golden with an off-white head which lasted to lace the glass.

The aroma was malty with a citrus base, mainly grapefruit. The aroma was mainly hops.

The flavor was sweet, like honey, which diminished over time into a citrus (grapefruit) flavor and bitterness.

The finish was dry with lingering grapefruit into the aftertaste and the body was medium, but seemed just a smidge lighter.

Pint at Mellow Mushroom in Charlottesville, VA.

I poured this beer from into my tumbler at 50 degrees. The beer was a red/gas looking color and it seemed to sustain a decent head. The bubbles were were fine and white. Smell was hoppy and i was expecting a hop bomb. Taste was not too hoppy though and in fact I thought this was pretty good for an IPA which I generally do not care for. So yes I would possbly buy this again.
