Mostly clear organish yellow with a creamy off-white head that dissapates pretty quickly. Nice lacing.
Nice strong citrus/grapefruit aroma with sweet grainy malts. Pretty floral too, and really pops out of the glass in the aroma dept, nice. I think I might like a tad more complexity to that aroma, but I appreciate the strenght.
Similar to the taste, but the malts seem to come through a little more than the hops, which isn't as good in my book. The malts are pretty caramel foreward too, and not particularly complex. The hops are there too though, but are kind of basic in the citrusy dept. Pretty balanced, but not much of a hop showcase really.
Medium to light body with moderate carbonation. Pretty creamy and smooth, but with a good bite too. Kind of lingers around on the tongue for a while too, in a sort of chalky way.
Not bad, but pretty midde of the road, balanced IPA with no real spotlight on anything. I tend to prefer those that focus a little more on hop complexity, or at least a little more malt depth if the two are even. This is just kind of "meh".
