This poured a reddish amber colour with a white head.

The smell was citrus hops, oranges, lemons and grapefruit.

The taste was much the same as the smell, very tasty.

The mouth feel was medium bodied with a fair amount of carbonation.

Overall a very well done west coast IPA, ticks all the boxes. The citrus hop really stand out in this, crisp clean and quite bitter.

Straightforward west coast-style IPA, on tap at Delta Grill in NYC. Not bad but not as good as Sucks or Leftovers or Hop Stoopid (I know those are doubles, so sue me). Golden orange color, a bit hazy, with a decent white head, fair retention and lacing. Grapefruit and piney hop aromas with a touch of sweetness, pretty familiar in the nose. Taste follows suit, somewhat more subdued hop character than I’d like, again, lots of grapefruit and pine, pineapple and orange, some malt sweetness underneath. Bitter but not overwhelmingly so. Smooth, medium bodied with medium carbonation, decently dry finish, just a little bitterness hanging around after. Good but not exceptional.

In a pint glass:

A: red/golden body that yields a half finger white head that lasts for about thirty seconds. No carbonation is seen rising. Some spotty light foamy lacing is seen trickling around the sides of the glass.

S: malts in front of the hops and comes out very strong. There is some caramel that comes out as the beer warms.

T: pretty much the same with a nice added sweetness, very much impressed.

M: medium, sessionable, balanced wet/dry aftertaste and finish

O: this is good IPA, however, with the malts coming out as strong as they do, I'm just wondering is this an English or an American IPA? Anyhow, no big deal, I'd have it again.
