Poured from can into HF oversized glass. Nice smell on this one, a little grapefruity, mellowed a bit as this can isn't super fresh. Not a lot of head and almost no retention. Not overpoweringly bitter, but a nice bite towards the end. An easy drinker for 6.5 percent, and hasn't fallen off much, even after a month and a half.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A - bright orange with a tall, off white head that has short retention but leaves nice lacing

S - big grapefruit aromas with some faint floral notes as well

T - bready malt, some faint sugary sweetness, big grapefruit notes, mildly piney, moderate bitterness in the finish

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a great IPA. The hops aren't over the top so it's easy to drink without destroying your palate. The balance here is fantastic with just a slight sweetness to cut the mild bitterness. The grapefruit presence is a fantastic feature. Overall, a great IPA that is definitely worth checking out.

Picked up a reasonably priced sixer of cans at a Binny's. Thank you, Revolution, for not going down the douchebag route of putting your cans in 4-packs.

Aside from that--goddamn, have American brewers gotten good at brewing high-alpha IPAs. Big giant alpha burst up front, with your regular nodes of oranges and grapefruit dried potpourri flowers. The middle is maltier, the finish is more citrus, and there's absolutely no off nodes: no parts where the bitterness gets too sharp, no stickiness on the back of the tongue.
