So Im having this pint at Boston Logan Airport Cisco Brew Pub.
Cloudy light copper. Rather cloudy for the style. Solid head, lots of rentention and ample lacing.
Light malt, extensively hoppy. Im excited. Lots of bitter, citrus, some pine.
Intense grapefruit, wow. Bitter, more bitter, and some aromatic hops. Barely any malt, this is for the hop heads.
Sits well for the bitterness level. I cant believe the grapefruit i taste, maybe a bit over the top.
Not sure its the most balanced IPA. Lots of hops, but I think the grapefruit is a bit too much.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz can poured into a pint glass.
A: sort of a burnt Siena type of color to it. So,what hazy. Creamy off white head retains well at a half an inch and leaves webs of lacing etched into the glass.
S: Intense oily and herbal hops waft up from the glass. Judging from the nose this is going to have a hell of a bite. Earthy and dank, wet and leafy. Hints of mandarin orange come out briefly. A touch floral too, underneath it all. Malt base is very toasty with nuances of crust and dark caramel.
T: Earthy hop tastes. Resin and maybe even a bit of bark. Very oily and bitter. Bitingly bitter, actually. Lemon pulp and mandarin orange begin to emerge as the palate adjusts. Malt base lays down some fat bready and toasty flavors. Some thick chewy caramel too. As big as the malt flavors are, the hop bitterness still cuts through and finishes the stronger of the two. Toast and a heavy biting bitterness on the long finish.
M: Big boned medium body. Creamy. Bitter, biting hop oils. Astringent and enamel gripping.
O: Very east coast in style. The large malt backbone might turn off some west coast purists, but there's plenty of acute bitterness here to keep a staunch hop head happy. This beer isn't playing around, it's all about rough, oily bitterness.

It's a pretty good IPA. Not Hoppy enough for my taste. I thought appearance is nice with a color of copper. A light head that dissolves upon pouring into the glass. It has hints of caramel and grapefruit in the smell. The taste to me is bit too malty and sweet. I would almost consider this a pale ale. The mouthfeel is nice and smooth, not bready at all. Easy to drink if you want to hang out with your buddies but not an outstanding IPA.

Poured into pint glass. Slightly hazy copper. Thin off-white head, with some lacing.
Nose is super sweet. Sugar and hops. Ethanol.
Taste is not great. Un-balanced hops. Grains and metal. Kind of artificial and chemically tasting.
Can't recommend this one.
