Darker amber in color, with a firm, off-white head, that retained as a ringlet, and left some dots of lacing on the glass. Nose was fairly malty for an IPA, with some honey sweetness, pithy hops. In the taste, grapefruit pith, candied orange peel, bubblegum, persistent sugars--pale malts, honey--which took the edge off any hop bitterness that may have been present. Kind of like tropical candy. Not really my kind of IPA, but it was actually still pretty good. Light-medium body, and decently drinkable.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet honey and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice citrus forward hop presence all around.
