A special thanks to Prager62 for this can!

A - Pours a deep copper amber color, clear, nice carbonation and a fluffy white head that sticks around.

S - Very pungent, dank citrus aroma and no malt anywhere to be found. Has a slight tinge of that cat pee aroma presence.

T - Just a ton of juicy red, pithy grapefruit rind and tangy orange/tangerine with a little bit of toasted caramel malt on the backside. Red juicy citrus dominates the palate and leaves a very long lingering bitter citrus finish.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation pricklies on the tongue.

O - This is an outstanding IPA.

Having this on tap at the local watering hole.

A: The brew shows up to the table as a dark red maybe redish orange in color. 1/2 inch wispy head and light lace on the glass.

S: seems to be a mishmash of citrus aromas and hops. I was hoping for a stronger grapefruit aroma but It smells good all the same.

T: This beer is fabulous. Grapefruit and orange peel are the two big things I get and it mixes really well with the bitterness and hops that are present. Not a hopknster or bitter bomb at all. I think I prefer it that way. It's just the right balance as to not over power the citrus.

M: medium body and really easy drinking.

O: I will be having this again in the future!
