A- A slightly hazed golden IPA. Little over a fingers worth of white head, spotty lacing as this receeds.
S- Big nose, this is got it all for a west coast IPA, grapefruit, pine, and light citrus notes. This is sort of sweet smelling, but not from the malt.
T- There's a thinness to this that really hurts the flavor IMO. Soft mild flavors move to an orange citrus middle and then a bitter metallic grapefruit finish. The malt is completely lost in this one, which may be leading to how light it drinks.
M- The body is really light, carbonation a tad under medium. There's a slight stickiness to it though.
O- This is the last I had from the Hop Box. I thought it was better the first time I tried it, and I'd definitely revisit it. I'd like to try it on tap as I feel it could be much better.
