Had this on tap at the brewpub. Pours an amber-copper type colour with a nice head. Smells of citrus and pine hops with lots of caramel malt. Taste has some sticky pine to go with an great bitterness level. Tons of grapefruit in there too. This is hoppier than many IPA's I've had, but it still has a big enough malt presense. The pint finished way too quickly.

I had this the day after Daisy Cutter and I can't decide which is my favourite APA, but they are number 1 & 2 in some order.
