This is a good IPA, and most love everything about this IPA. I love the pine feeling once you taste it. This IPA didn't have the right amount of grapefruit that I was looking for. Strong malt backbone of caramel, toffee, and this is a character with most West Coast IPA's. I tend to like less of that these days. This is good, or great by many standards, but I wanted more. Still very good.

A: Deep red-orange color. Creamy off-white head retains well at a half inch.

S: Sugary ruby red grapefruit, pine, blood orange. Hop spiciness. Smells like bitterness will be ample. Underlying malt scents of caramel ans toffee.

A - Nice deep copper with tan, dense head. Slight haze (I'm assuming dry hop haze).

S - Great hop aroma. I would swear there was a small dose of English hops in there if I didn't know it was all C hops and domestic varieties. It's wonderfully hoppy without coming across as hop-astringent (if you know what I mean). Malt comes through with the slightest caramel notes.

T - Sweet malt up front, followed immediately by a balancing bitterness that never comes on too strong, but builds nicely as you sip through the glass. I could actually stand a little more pronounced bitterness in the mid-palate.

M - creamy. Great carbonation and the rocky head wasn't lying when it promoted the beer as a full-bodied (but not heavy) delight.

O - As I mentioned, I could have used a little more bitterness sooner. But, overall a very nice IPA, sessionable & deftly balanced. I probably would regret if I did get more IBU's. Nice IPA!
