Had on tap at Mellow Mushroom 11/8/2012

Pretty standard dark orange/amber appearance with a faint head that trailed off quickly and didn't leave much lacing. Smell was split between citrus and pine. Smelled great, though not as much citrus as I was hoping for (after the descriptions I've read I had hoped to be blown away by strong grapefruit notes). Taste was tilted more toward the piny side, with citrus still there, and a faint biscuit or bread taste. Solid bitter finish to balance everything out. Medium bodied for an IPA with noticeable carbonation. Very solid IPA, and the best thing I've tried from Birdsong.
