The beer pours a nice and lasting head that stays after a while. The beer itself is a light amber orange that is clear.
A resinous and grapefruit smell from the hops. A hint of malt sweetness but ultimately overwhelmed.
The taste is extremely hoppy and bitter. The hops are a citrus and grapefruit taste. The beer has a slightly sweet malt backbone to that adds a nice compliment to all of the hops. The malts come out more in the aftertaste.
Biting carbonation. Smooth and medium bodied but feels much lighter. Finishes a little dry.
A very good APA and worth buying over and over again. Although, the hop content might be a little, I think it's pretty good.

A hazy, dark amber beer with a cream-colored head. Head retention is wonderful and a nice lacing is left behind.
Aromas are a very pleasant blanket of pine and citrus hops, with some bready malt undertones.
Sharp hop bitterness in the taste, but it's not overdone. The citrus and pine are the highlights as was in the nose. All-around a great tasting pale ale that could also be called an IPA.
Mouthfeel has a body I'd call medium. The finish is pretty dry and also hoppy, but has enough malt presence to keep the bitterness from being overbearing.
Overall a fine product that be suitable by itself or paired with a meal. Call me impressed!
Thanks go to Treyliff for the beer!
