Poured from a bottle into a magic hat keg glass.
A - Hazy but bright orange amber. Not surprising. Little head but it sticks around forever and leaves a lot of lacing.
S - It's actually pretty muted on the nose. Predominantly fruity/floral hops on the nose but it's not very strong.
T - VERY low bitterness for an IPA. Surprised at how mild the bitterness is, actually. The citric and piney hops are there but not overwhelmingly so, countered deftly by the roasty malt. That is one hell of a sessionable IPA.
M - Light on the carbonation and not heavy at all on the tongue. This beer goes down so easy I'm tempted to just crack open another and keep drinking.
Overall - 7% ABV? Sure don't taste like it! This one is subtle, fresh, strikes a killer balance of hops and malt, and finishes really clean. Unlike most IPA's that send you wave upon crashing wave of hop flavor and bitterness, this one drinks so easy that its 7% ABV will sneak up on you if you're not careful. A great choice both as an introductory IPA and an everyday brew.

Finally getting around to reviewing. The beer pours a mildly hazy copper amber with a thick head that settles to a thick collared ring. Nice lacing too.
Good scent of orange and grapefruit. Well done. A hint of caramel as well, but mostly all about the hops. Taste is similar with plenty of grapefruit. The caramel sweetness finishes with a crisp firm bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a great level of carbonation that comes off very well. Mostly dry finish, but the caramel sweetness lingers.
Great all around IPA that may not have the bells and whistles of today's over amped IBUs or latest hop cultivar, but comes together very well.
