Poured out of a bottle into a tulip.

A – Pours out a fairly clear light caramel brown color with a small white head that left a slight lacing down the glass.

S – Very nice aroma with a big hit of bitter hops along with a grapefruit smell. Tiny bit of sweetness in the nose.

T – Not nearly as hoppy as the nose would suggest but still get a nice hoppy bite. The citrus is there with the flavors of grapefruit and lemon. Sweet malts balance out the bitterness. Caramel like at the finish before it dries out.

M – Light to medium bodied with ample carbonation and a nice creamy feel.

O – Really nice IPA here. It has a excellent aroma followed by a creamy bitter to sweet flavor palate. Easy drinker. Well worth a try and I will be having more of these.

Pours bright orange with a foamy beige head. The aroma is intense resin, pine and floral hops, with some hay and bread notes. The flavor is very bitter and well balanced up front, with the bitterness dominating the finish. The palate is medium to heavy, sticky, acidic and astringent. The aftertaste is long, very bitter and acidic. Overall, this is a good IPA.
