An extra from a trade a month back- thanks for the brew, Paul.
Pours a nice orange color with subtle hints of red. White bubbles very present, even though it is a month old. I was impressed how the bubbles showed up out of nowhere.
Aroma is a little disappointing- I was expecting a more powerful smell. Traditional IPA smells with just a hint of caramel. I have to admit, that there is a slight sour smell- my guess is this beer simply sat in the fridge a little too long.
Taste is heavy in the lemon flavors- almost no grapefruit. I am surprised how much nut character I can pick up for being an IPA. Hints of alcohol in the background. A little thin compared to the typical IPA, but not too bad.
Not my favorite IPA of the season, but I am guessing fresh from a bottle is much nicer.

Big off white head slowly settles to a quarter to half inch froth covering a clear light caramel golden colored beer.
Citrus and pine hops aroma come through nicely.
Slight bitter hops coming through in citrusy and light pine hops tasting beer.
A dry slightly bitter dry aftertaste with a bit of the piney and citrus aspects of the taste stinking around with this medium bodied beer.
Pretty good tasting IPA for a six pack cans, usually better IPA's come in bombers or stuff like that.

Poured a nice clear amber, with thin white head that quickly dissipated, leaving a bit of lacing. Quite nice on the eyes. Scents of grapefruit and pine. A nice IPA scent. Flavor is very pine forward, very much a big hit of pine resin. Grapefruit pith is the secondary flavor, with a bit of a tiny floral hint in the finish. The bitterness level is quite high, befitting the beer's 90 IBUs. There is a tiny hint of malt present, but overall it's pine, a hint of grapefruit and a tiny amount of floral hops. A nice piney hop bomb. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. About what is standard for the style. Overall this is a good IPA, with a nice pine forward character and a nice high level of bitterness. Well worth trying.

Slightly hazy golden amber with a large foamy white head with decent retention. Pretty nice lacing.
Sweet caramel malts first, followed by a citrusy grapefruit hop aroma. The hops are pretty muted, but I'm not sure how old the bottle is. Not bad, but I would like much more of a hop kick to the nose.
Similar to the aroma, malt forward, heavy on the caramel malt. A tad stale tasting. Not much in the way of hops here either. I'm just getting the basic citrusy hops, moderately bitter, but not a whole lot of hop flavor.
Moderate body and moderate carbonation. Leaves some residue on the tongue to accompany the bitterness.
Not a super huge fan of this one. It tastes more like an amber ale than an IPA to me - a little heavy on the caramel malts and not heavy enough on the hops. Kind of a funky, stale aftertaste.
