Poured from 12oz. bottle into Jester King tulip.

Pours a nice, clear golden-orange. Small head that dissipated fairly quickly with moderate lacing.

Fairly mild nose for an IPA with citrus notes taking precedence over mild pine scent of the hops.

Very nice balance of bitter and sweet maltiness. This is really restrained for an IPA without tasting bland or watered down. Definitely not one to go for if you're after a hop bomb, but excellent if you're planning on having more than one.

The bitterness of the hops is just enough to add a nice crispness - not too mouth-puckering. No carbonation to speak of, but for me that's a plus with this style.

An excellent example of what an IPA was before the hop and ABV arms race started. This almost reminded me of a classic English bitter, just stepped up a little. I just grabbed a single at the grocery store and rather wishing I'd picked up a 6 pack. This is one for regular drinking rather than a tasting night, and I mean that in a good way. Will definitely be getting this again.

Pours hazy light orange with a one finger with decent retention and lacing. The aroma has grapefruit, citrus zest, pine, and biscuit malt. Not a very strong aroma.

The taste is also not very strong and has grapefruit, citrus zest, pine, and biscuit malt. There is both bitterness and sweetness, with the bitterness being stronger, but neither is very strong. This could be an old bottle, but since there is no date on it, who can tell?

Medium bodied with average carbonation, and almost no aftertaste. Overall, a somewhat above average IPA.
