At Upper Crust in Edmond. Served in a shaker pint with grapefruit garnish, which I quickly discarded. Pours to a generous head that leaves symmetrical lacing all the way down. Orange-gold and hazy. Aroma is grapefruity, piney hops and not much else. Flavor is a rush of the same hop characters that are balanced by a subtle malt backdrop. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly sugary. Alcohol warmth is evident. Overall a very good AIPA.

Pours a nice, firm flat white head, with excellent retention. Saw a few floaties while pouring. Brew is a hazy gold. Nice thick and layered lacing.

Hop aroma drifted over from the pour, carrying citrus and floral notes. Huge grapefruit citrus and tropical fruit present in the nose on closer inspection: a truly classic IPA aroma. Hint of honey, and some biscuity malt profile is noticeable but not strong.

Taste is a balance of the two hop flavors most noticeable in the aroma: first, sweet tropical fruit like mango; a huge hit of ruby red grapefruit; then finally a little bit of sweet dankness and pine. Malt balance is there, as well, with a dry biscuity finish, corn, and dry, chalky wheat. Citrus peel and pine resin on the finish.

Very nice overall balance, for a very smooth finish. A little grainy on the malts; lively with little sting; no alcohol presence; medium-light, for a drinkable, gulpable IPA. Semi-dry finish.

This is a very good, classic single IPA, and a massively bitter one, at that. It's not mind-blowing, and I don't think it's bringing anything unique to the table, but it could absolutely be an appropriate every-day IPA.
