My first review!

A: Goldish-Copper and clear. Light white head with minimal retention. Some lacing. Minimal bubbles.

S: Sweet, floral with a metallic grapefruit smell. The grapefruit comes through stronger each time I smell it.

T: Tastes like it smells-good balance initially, then a crisp, late-arriving grapefruit taste that lingers well after a drink.

M: Very lightly carbonated, but not dull. Very smoothe.

O: Damn good IPA. Could drink every day.

Thanks to the beer guy at The Hills Market in Worthington/Columbus for this recommendation.

Hands down my favorite IPA. I am also lucky enough to live 10 minutes away from the brewery so I have access to it 24/7.
The smell of this beer is redunk, its smooth and slightly hoppy with a taste that WOWs just like the smell. Its pretty consistent from batch to batch, although I have purchased a sixer or two that were a little hoppier than normal but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. If given the opportunity to try this beer i strongly advise doing so, you wont regret it!

A - Clear copper body, white head has some retention and some lacing.

S - Solid tropical fruit nose right from when I crack the cap off the bottle with mango and pineapple.

T - Smell doesn't really translate to taste. Grapefruit flesh, with caramel and honey-like sweetness. Touch of butter. Finishes with an ambiguous, mostly flavorless bitterness with some pine.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Finishes dry. Prickly bitterness across the palate.

O - Expected a lot more out of this one. Taste just didn't pull through enough and had butter off-flavor. I'll pass on it next time I'm in town. Maybe they should bottle date?
