The beer comes in a slightly hazy reddish amber.

The aroma is traditional American IPA. Floral, caramel sweetness, breadiness, grapefruit.

The flavor is slightly different heavy floral up front, medium plus bready quality and sweetness. A spicy pine as well. Then onto some sweet grapefruit. In general, the flavor is a bit brighter than other beers in the style.

Reminds me of Bell's Two Hearted.
