Nice looking beer. And it tastes good too. Crisp hop profile. Mild resin with a clean overall profile. There is a sweet tone that dominates this beer, but doesn't get obnoxious or overdone at all. Very easy to drink and a very smooth IPA. An excellent beer. Grab this one if you see it.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a clear yellowish-apricot body with a strong matrix of microbubbles. There is a thick rocky white head that sticks to the glass in lumps.

S- The aroma is like opening a fresh bag of hop pellets bright and green leaf qualities.

T- The green bright woody hops have a touch of sweetness in the finish with a lightly bright pungent aftertaste. There is a nice cream flavor that comes through in the malt flavor.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a tight little fizz that creates a nice creamy texture as it opens.

O- The nice IPA has some interesting classic character to the hops and a nice flavor. I’m not sure it is enough to be a hero but it is one tasty pedestrian.

Appearance: Good session ale. Golden with great lacing.

Smell: Lots of fresh grapefruit. One of the more citrus-oriented IPAs I've ever had.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Lots of grapefruit. A nice caramel backbone and some grass. Medium-bodied with great carbonation

Overall: Very good IPA. Did I mention the grapefruit?
