Pours a golden orange color.
The aroma of this beer is very mild, but pleasant. It smells fairly piney and fruity.
The beer itself tastes like piney hops... and grapefruit. I have had the habanero version previously, and the habaneros added their own fruity flavor but took away from the holiness of the beer itself. With the plain version of itself, the hops are a lot stronger and the flavor profile is improved (and believe me, I do love the flavor of habaneros too).
Overall this might be my favorite IPA without going into double territory and will definitely be picking it up again, although not as much as I like due to the price.

A-a clear light orange amber with two fingers worth of white head that sticks to the glass
S-pale malt backbone with citric hops and light sweet fruit
T-taste still has the pale malt backbone but the hops really comes out in the taste more. Citrus hops, lemon zest, and pine.
M-medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall a really hop forward IPA, very enjoyable, very easy to drink
