Reminds me of a dogfish head 60 minute IPA but a bit sweeter and lighter.

Looks how it's supposed to, amber color with a smallish head. Surprisingly sweet nose, malt, candy, and also a bunch of fruit. Maybe some cookies. Flavor is similarly sweet; lots of fruitiness. Hop bitterness is there, although fairly subtle. Well balanced. Overall a nice, very drinkable IPA.

Appearance: Golden in color, pours about a half finger white head that fades quickly with lacing.
Smell: Grapefruit, Pine, Citrus in that order
Taste: Sadly mostly pine and citrus followed by a faint hint of grapefruit that quickly fades to a malt backbone, wanted more staying power here. Light bitterness remaining.
Mouthfeel: Thin, mild carbonation
Overall: Not offensive, but nothing great as far as IPA's go, with the grapefruit being so strong in the smell I was hoping for it in the flavor.

This isn't the beer made by this brewery to reach for first. This is just an average IPA with a good nose. It doesn't disappoint, but nothing special.

Has a really dark hoppy taste. I could have sworn that the recipe has changed because about 5 years ago, this beer definitely had a light hoppy taste
