Pours a hazy orangish amber with a massive creamy head & an absolute crapload of floating debris. Nice floral hoppy aroma that also features loads of grapefruit some toasted caramel malt and hints of sweet fruit (apricot, peach). Muted base of pale malt lends some sweetness, but is outdone completely by the hopping. Moderately bitter with flavors of citrus & pine - great use of hops here, this is delicious stuff. Finishes slightly acidic with more fruity notes. Amazing creaminess to this IPA only adds to its delightfulness & makes it more drinkable & unique. Top notch.

Poured from a pint can into a tall tulip.
A - Nice amber color with about a finger of light tan soap bubble head. Short retention and sticky lacing.
S - Nice and balanced citusy hop aroma.
T - Tastes like an IPA. Bright and citrusy up front with a bitter hop finish. Nothing life changing or Earth shattering, but not bad by any means.
M - Crisp with a nice dry finish.
O - A good IPA. Nothing more, nothing less.
