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.

12 oz bottle via Oxymoron

P: Pours a clear golden under a medium sized white head. Some lace and some decent retention.

S: Smells grapefruity hops with hints of other citrus fruits.

T: Tastes of a bitter hops, a refreshing grapefruit and pine. Not a whole lot of malt backbone. Hops are very refreshing, and very balanced.

M/D: Light bodied, slightly prickly carbonation, semi-creamy body. Pretty refreshing and pretty drinkable. A very solid IPA.

I poured this one from a 12oz brown bottle into a tulip pint glass.

A= This ale poured a very lightly hazed yellow/gold with a 3/4" white head. The head dropped slowly to a thin cap and left behind lots of soapy lace down my glass.

S= I found a very light malt aroma (mostly bready) covered by grapefruit and orange hop notes.

T= Started off with a brief biscuity malt presence that was soon buried by an avalanche of oily hop flavors and a firm bitterness. Hop flavor contained grapefruit, orange, and a hint of minty herbs. Finished dry with a lot of hop aftertaste.

MF= Medium bodied, modest carbonation feel.

D= A highly drinkable IPA here, but there was something I could not place in the flavor that just didn't do it for me. Well made all the same, and I would gladly revisit this one to continue my research!
