This beer is another step into my adventures with IPA's. I've never been a fan of the IPA because of the bitterness, but I've been trying them more and more and the taste has rapidly grown on me.
I picked up a six pack of this one after tasting at a local beer expo.
I poured it into a pint glass and it left a white, thick head that laced all the way down the glass. Bright golden color was very inviting.
The smell is a little dull, but I pick up that typical citrus aroma with some hops.
The taste is great. It's not too bitter and not too overpowering on the hops. There's a delightful grapefruit taste at the start and a nice bright, hoppy finish with that familiar IPA bite in the back of the throat.
I found myself drinking it much faster than I expected. Very impressed with this beer. Will most definitely purchase it again.

I’ve had this many times before, but, having just joined the site, I decided to write a review this time. The beer is dated 6/3/14 (about two months old). It pours a straw yellow that borders on copper under certain lighting. The aroma is pleasant with a subtle citrus characteristic, but predominantly earthy resinous hops. The taste has more citrus than the nose would suggest and is full of orange and lemon zest. The beer finishes with a sturdy, resinous hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue for awhile. It is medium bodied with a modest amount of carbonation, which suits the style well. Overall, a solid beer. At a reasonable price, it is a nice go-to beer.
