Pours a transparent amber with a white foamy head.

The smell is full citrus hops, strong oranges and grapefruit.

The taste is similar to the smell, citrus hops, a little bitter.

The mouthfeel is smooth with medium carbonation.

Overall this was a great citrusy hoppy ipa, a fantastic example.

I'm a big fan of IPA's and this is a classic.

Enjoyed in a clear pint glass.

A nice cloudy appearance. Reddish orange colour.

Great hints of citrus, lemon and grapefruit on the nose.

Clean hops with grapefruit finished with a good bitters. Not in your face.

A good mouthfeel. Balanced.

From a growler (keg that was tapped tonight, right in front of me as I waited), poured into a beer temp pint glass.

A- Clean and clear golden- copper color, some gently rising bubbles. Every pour resulted in a massive milk-white colored head that would not quit and left the finest quality thick lacing.

S- Pine, fresh green grass, and lots of citrus hops. The aromas vary as the beer warms, just like they should in a top-notch IPA.

T-All those hop flavors are there, but hold the phone, here come the malts. The malt backbone delivers some sweet caramel and a touch of breadiness.

M-Oily, resinous, yet clean and crisp. Lots of body with a surprisingly mellow finish...for a moment...then the hop zest, not very bitter.

O-A real deal American IPA on the fuller side, yet drinkable, even at 7.5% abv.
