Poured into a tulip glass. Thanks, Darren.

A: An opaque golden. A white one-finger head that dissipates to foam. Thick lacing.

S: Citrus, featuring grapefruit. Grassy hops.

T: A terrific rush of hops with grapefruit in the lead. Smooth, sweet, well-balanced hop/malt combo. Outstanding.

M: Medium with medium, frothy carbonation.

O: Although the born on date was almost 6 months, this one was very fresh-tasting. Glad I got to try my first FW brew. More on the way. Well done. Highly recommended.

My first brew from these guys, had this on tap at a Yard House in Denver. Color was a little orange for an IPA, some copper. The construction was good, decent lacing, not a ton of head. I thought the taste though was rather pedestrian, not too hoppy, none of the pine or citrus you might get in some. Above average IPA, but I was a little disappointed.
