Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Brad007 on 01-01-2012

This medium bodied American style IPA has an alluring golden glow and beautifully blends three strains of hops. While strong citrus notes ambush your taste buds halfway through the palate, the beer finishes very crisp and dry.

Small but lasting head. Leaves a blanket of lace on the pint glass. Very hazy. Dark gold color.

Strong grapefruit and evergreen smell from dry hopping. Pale malt base is also present.

Soft pale malt start but the hop bitterness takes over with a strong black pepper presence. Mid-level body with mildly elevated carbonation. Long straight bitter aftertaste.

Quick notes:

Beautiful hazy orange brew (pulpy in appearance). Good head retention.

Decent balance of citrus and pine notes from the hops; nice showing from the malt base. Remarkably dry finish; that's what stands out most about this beer.

Flavor-wise, it's an OK IPA, nothing particularly noteworthy.
