Hop haze tinging this beer a translucent tangerine amber color. Nice collar formed.

Zesty citrus, pine, and pale and caramel malts. Notes of grapefruit, mild tropical fruit rind, some fresh leaf mintiness, and a hint of pine.

Dry hoppy flavors. Muddled between citrus and pine. Grapefruit pith, tangerine, papaya, and pine. Malts have a bitter toast and create decent balance. Works well as an East Coast IPA. Body has good mouth to it. Weighty enough with a sparkling carbonation. Works well.

Taste is of grapefruit, citrus rind, and pale malt. The body of the brew was a nice mix of the hops and the malt. The end taste of this tasty brew is bitter and dry. The dryness stayed a while. I have other American IPAs that I prefer including a couple from DuClaw, but this is certainly worth a try.

This was past its prime but was still a decent brew. I imagine when fresh the hops are much more delicious, but as it is its bitter but not exceptionally tasty. Will revisit when I can find fresh.

Great IPA. Very citrusy. One of DuClaw's best. Better than Serum.

Not much nose on this. Pretty solid ipa though. Malt forward with pine following close behind. Not bad at all. Above average for style but unfortunately it probably won't get much attention in todays ipa saturated market.
