look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Slightly hazy gold, good head.

Smell: Very nice, grapefruit, lime, citrus rind, sweetness.

Taste: Mildly sweet before shifting to citrus bitterness, dry finish.

Overall: Not quite as dry as most session IPAs, seems to have a little more malt hanging in there before giving way to the big time dry finish. It and Bitter Brewer are probably the best of the session bitter/IPA crowd.

Has that great grapefruit, mango, resiny, grassy, tropical fruit hop aroma characteristic of citra. Flavor reveals deep resiny notes, fairly bitter, at the base, with a hollow malt character not providing much support. Muted grapefruit and citrus pith add intrigue, but those resiny bittering hops dominate. A little overly bitter for my liking.
