Big thanks to this beer from BlackForestCO
Pours a very slightly hazy orange to golden color with a nice white head. Smell is a bit fruity, musky and earthy hops. A unique smelling hop combination. Taset is crisp and hoppy with an almost funky mustiness but sharply flavored hop. Goes down very easily and really is a unique IPA. Pretty damn good and drinkable.

Thanks to fishdawg71 for this one.

Small capped bottle poured into a pint; the nice orange but clear body produced a nice fluffy white head, that eventually drops into a collar but said collar goes all the way, as it produces a nice lacing.
Aroma is certainly hoppy, but a lot more floral than grapefruity, and along comes some bready maltiness to balance it a bit.
Reasonably firm on the palate, it is hoppy but not overly hopped; there is a nice balance between the floral hops and bready malts; not a lot of grapefruit here which makes it nicer in my opinion.
Well crafted and balanced.

Slightly hazy golden body; creamy white head.

Old bottle but big grapefruit on the nose, smells really good. Malt on level of hops.

Follows nose really close; Big grapefruit notes with spicy malt underneath it.

Light body; Moderate to heavy carbonation, really smooth nice feel.

Really easy and refreshing IPA especially for 7%

A-Pours a slightly murky golden color with slight amber hues, a light cream colored head of about a finger's width leaving nice lacing on the glass.
S-Piney hops and fresh sweet citrus aromas prevail of grapefruit, orange and mango. There are malty notes in the background.
T-Sweet citrus flavors up front balanced by hoppy bitterness and malty afternotes...nice transitions.
M-Moderate feel and carbonation. Crisp and clean.
D-Very drinkable, a nice beer to have on hand.

Oxymoron sent this along in a recent trade. Thanks!
Poured a cloudy light orange colour with a thin off-white cap of fine bubbles. Sheets of bubbles clung to the glass and lacing was spotty as I finished the glass. Smells of grapefruit and pine, a bit powdery and quite fruity. Solid bitterness that became a bit resinous in the lingering finish. Citrus and grapefruit, plus a bit of sweet caramel, filled out the flavour. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. A bit drying. A solid IPA, well balanced and nothing out of place. Good stuff.
