Golden colored and good clarity, medium level carbonation and lower levels of white head retention. Nice hop aroma, like bitter grapefruit. For an IPA I found the flavor to be better balanced then most IPAs, some maltiness present, but a bitter hop aftertaste is the dominate flavor present. Very crisp as well as drinkable ale. The mouth feel is fantastic! Smooth and very creamy...

I am not a hop-head by any means, but the balance and smoothness of this IPA was very good and an IPA worth buying again in my book.
