This was served in a pint glass, showing a light straw-colored body with a thin yet very sticky head that left spider-web lacing on the glass. The nose was strong and powerful (in comparison to the taste) with a strong shot of grapefruit up front and a good compliment of grassy undertones smelling certainly well-hopped. The taste was fair and a bit disappointing because while pleasant, it was weak and watery in comparison to what you would expect by what the smell is offering. The watery texture takes away from the taste and mouthfeel but lends itself to slightly increasing the drinkability.
Serving type: on-tap

This is my first IPA and I have to say, not a great impression has been made on me. I like the look and it had a hearty smell too it, like others said sort of a piney-ness to it. The taste however was very bitter, I don't feel that I'm experienced enough in the IPA category to properly judge, HOWEVER, the bitterness and aftertaste for me was not something I thoroughly enjoyed. I'll continue trying out various ipa's and rewrite a review if I feel I didn't do this one justice but I will say they put enough of a alcohol percentage in to it so that I didn't completely waste my money away!
