Bottle sent as an extra in a trade with brabuse430. I requested something hoppy I had not reviewed and he complied. Overall this is a decent beer, a little heavy for an IPA but I've been spoiled recently by a series of really light bodied IPAs I've brewed myself.
Beer served in a snifter, as I do not have the proper glassware for this brewery. I'm a failure at life and the rest. Beer is pretty dark amber, mild haze, white head, small bubbles, some lacing, decent retention.
Aroma is a little pine, mostly grapefruit, a little alcohol, a little malt.
Beer is medium in body, a little sweet, pretty bitter, nice citrus notes on the palate, overall a good drinking beer. A little heavier than I want but it is a nice balance of hops and backbone. I might have it again on draft.
