A- Dull copper with a 1 finger white head. Lacing is soapy

S- Ruby red grapefruit, tangerine for sure, and some melon. Not overly juicy, but clean and inviting.

T- Follows nose, but takes it up a notch. A bouquet of citrus and fruity hops up front, then a wave of doughy malt. At first you think it finishes smooth, but then a fashionably late bitter tone comes nocking at the door late...giving that "west coast" style it claims.

M- Mid body, clean, crisp, no booze.

O- Impressive. Just a really, really well done IPA. I will certainly pick up more next time I have the chance.

Bottle purchased at Pace High Carry-Out in Columbus, OH.

Pours a clear golden dark orange, with a 3/4 inch head and globs of lacing down the glass.

Bright and vibrant citrus aroma, quite dank. Slight herbal smells too.

The overarching citrus character carries over into the taste as well. Definitely some orange, pineapple, and grapefruit. The only malt character I can pick out is honey sweetness, which complements the juicy hop flavor well. Not very bitter, doesn't linger on the palate very long.

Starts a bit sweet, but finishes dry and slightly crackery. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel and low carbonation.

A great IPA, been looking to try this one for a while now.
