Poured from a 12 oz bottle into Lagunitas glass:
A - poured a orange amberish color with an average head that faded quickly. nice sticky lacing.
S - its all about the grapefruit, its beautiful with just a hint of a pine aromatic. one of the most pleasant smelling IIPA's i've had with the abundant butnot overpowering Grapefruit. after a couple of sips i was catching a whiff of Honey as well.
T - the taste is a bit more balanced than the aroma with the citrus up front and the pine throughout the mouth. the pine lingers just a bit and there is a sense of the malt on the finish.
M - it seemed to be light in body with average carbonation but after about 2/3 of a bottle i could feel the alcohol creeping in.
O - i really enjoyed this beer. the aroma was inviting, little aftertaste, and easily drinkable. It was a bit shy in the maltiness character but I was happy to have scored a six pack yesterday! This will always be on my list of buys when available.

4.23/5 rDev -3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A: Bright brass-colored hue with a tuck white head and great lacing
S: Lots of citrus hop aromas up front--grapefruit with some tropical fruits lingering; some sweet malts but mostly this is a fruity hop bomb
T: Not as much tropical fruits in the flavor--quite bitter and still some citrusy grapefruits hops but also some grassy and dank hop flavors with a subtle sweet malty undertone underneath
F: Nice body and even a bit chewy and oily
O: A bitter hop bomb; this is a great beer but I would love it to just have a bit more of a sweet malty undertone to bring just a tad more balance
