Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a two inch head; a fairly nice pattern of lace is left behind

Smell: Citrus aromatics, with pink grapefruit and tangerine elements; biscuity malts underneath

Taste: A little bit of the biscuit to provide a platform for the hops and then we are on to the bitter, pithy elements that dominate the aroma; pink grapefruit and tangerine; tropical elements linger, after the swallow, with some pineapple and a hint of apricot joining the citrus; the finish is clean and dry

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very nice IPA, just like I like it - loads of citrus and a very clean malt character

Thanks, duels, for the opportunity

Many thanks to the legendary woodychandler for the hook up. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a burnt orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is alive with grapefruit and hops. Taste is very hoppy, grapefruit, considerable bitterness throughout. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.
