A: Pours a hazy copper color with a decent head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma of grapefruit, fruit and some malt sweetness in the background.

T: Taste of grapefruit, some malt sweetness and a bit of spice. Decent bitterness and a fairly clean finish with just a bit of pine lingering.

F: Medium body, crisp but a tad short on flavor.

O: Decent IPA, nothing over the top.

Poured into a Pint Glass

Appearance - Orange with a rather strong haze. Head is about 3 fingers in width with a soapy makeup. Good amount of lacing along the sides as well.

Smell - Pungent Floral Hops, Yeasts, Caramel, and Citrus. Definitely a sweeter smelling IPA and rather pleasant.

Taste - Strong Floral Hops, Resin, and Yeasts. The more it warms up, the more of a sweet malty/caramel characteristic that comes out. The change is quite nice

Mouthfeel - It's got a slightly heavy body with some mild carbonation. It's not crisp but it's alright.

Overall - It's a good IPA that doesn't do anything too spectacular, but the progressive sweetness that the flavor takes on is worth checking out.
