look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Deep golden almost light amber body with the appropriate creamy white head. The smell is pine needles, grapefruit rind, and some tropical fruit. The taste is rich and bitter. There is enough citrus sweetness to round everything together. The mouthfeel is full but also slick. This is about as crushable as it gets for almost 7%. This rating goes over 4.5 though when on draft at the Brew Kettle. It's as good as a citrusy IPA gets when on draft. The bottle is still in the top 10 for Midwest IPAs.

Poured into a tulip

A- pours a hazy golden yellow color with lots of thick carbonation bubbles floating to the top, creating a thick white foamy head, a few floating swimming around

S- bright citrus hops with some dank aromas, hemp, honey, some fruity esters, just a hint of bready malt

T- fresh grapefruit juice flavors with some orange zest, light grassy notes with tropical pineapple, sweet honey mid-palate leads to a clean and dry finish with lingers of citrus

M- medium body and carbonation lead to a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish, ABV is barely noticeable

O- this packs the flavors of a DIPA, yet is extremely drinkable. Bright citrus notes highlight this one, and lingers on the palate like very few regular IPA's, an outstanding beer
