Thanks Fitz for sharing this one. Poured into a standard solo cup, it had a golden orange color, with a thin layer of white foam on the surface, some clusters of larger bubbles clung to the sides of the glass.

Citrusy grapefruit aroma, slightly grassy and pungent with resinous hops.
Taste is also citrus forward, mainly grapefruit that is slightly sweet, a light pale malt presence towards the middle, generally very light and smooth in feel. Light to medium bitterness, it finishes clean and mellow. Very drinkable, but somewhat one dimensional taste-wise. Enjoyed the light body and easy drinkability most of all.

Any better than some of the best local IPA's? Not really, but it's well made and worth trying.
