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.
