Thanks to DonFrap!

Pours a very hazy opaque dark almost muddy orange. Two fingers of off white head. Lost of web by lace.

Bright citrus aroma, with some floral hops and touches of pine and sweet bread malts.

Taste is high citrus, ,old grapefruit, some sweet orange, spice, somewhat resinous.

Has a great feel, somewhat light bodies, good mild crisp carbonation, some slickness.

Another great HF IPA, but I think Abner is better still. Yeah, I'm splitting hairs ;)

Had on tap at Queens Kickshaw in Astoria. 12oz pour into tulip.

A-this is a magnificent beer to behold. Glad I am enjoying it in the day so I can see its vibrant copper color beautiful fluffy 1/2" head and beautiful lacing and consistent visible micro-carbonation. This a like a Van Gogh or Matisse, gorgeous.

S-Hints of orange and grapefruit with a backbone of piney resin. Kind of like an Ephraim-lite.

T-wonderful citrus burst, best example of grapefruit I have had in a perfect way. There is a pine based with mango and pineapple all over the place.

M-my mouth was watering thru the entire experience. Beautiful bit of tingle on the tongue, great level of carbonation, and reminiscent of OJ with a bit of pulp. Quite pleasing.

O-I love White Raja and really enjoy Fat Head and Flower Power, Blind Pig, and Zombie Dust. With that all said, this brew killed it in a way that none of those beers was able to. The best part is that the flavor lingers in the back of your throat. I would love to have regular access to this beauty.
