A: Pours translucent orange with an amber hue, capped by one finger of frothy white head. Retention is moderate to poor as the head recedes fairly quickly, leaving behind some scant lacing.
S: Strong hops up front with a blend of citrus and pine character. Lots of juicy grapefruit and orange along with some light tropical fruits. Some faint bready malts in the background.
T: Big citrus character up front with the same juicy grapefruit and orange as in the nose, and a big dose of pine follows right behind. Some floral hops come in on the mid-palate along with the malt base before giving way to a fruit-filled finish with both citrus and tropical sides.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, very clean finish.
D: Very drinkable with a good hop bite, this is a rather impressive IPA.
