Misc.: Enjoy by Sept. 22, 2014
Poured a caramel, amber, honey clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki white frothy head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Good spiderweb lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention on the top of the glass all the way down.
Smelled grapefruit, piney, citrus hops, floral hops, caramel, bitter spices and orange rind. It all dried up late.
Tasted similar to the nose. Very good. Got piney grapefruit, citrus, floral, caramel, Simcoe, Centennial and Mosaic. It reminded me a bit of a session IPA.
Light-to-medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.
Really enjoyed this IPA.

4.15/5 rDev +4%
BBD 9/15/14. Clear medium amber pour with a very faint ruby tint. Excellent head, lacing and retention. Very nice nose of grapefruit and tropical (mango) with a touch of spice and pine over a very light biscuit. Medium bodied with a normal carbonation level that imparts a bit of effervescence on the finish. Nice balanced flavor profile with a bit of hop complexity in a blended fashion. It begins with the flavors of the nose then flows into a mild bitterness. The finish is dry, not quite crisp, and leaves you with a light grapefruit rind bitterness and a touch of spice.

3.74/5 rDev -6.3%
Pours a beautiful dark amber with a flurry of cascading bubbles and a one inch billowy foamy head. Leaves a slight amount of lacing along the glass. The smell -- grapefruit, grapefruit, grapefruit! Also subtle hints of mango in there. Really nice. Grapefruit is also the overwhelming quality of the taste. Nice level of carbonation. Really fresh tasting beer. I had one on 8/7 that had a Best Buy date of 8/17 and it felt like I was drinking this right at a brewery. Really solid IPA. For a 6.3% ABV, very easy to drink.
