Pours a clear copper with a frothy half inch cream head that slowly dissipates, leaving spotty lacing.
Resin, grapefruit, and bready caramel malt sweetness dominate the aroma initially. Hints of onion, fresh cut grass, and cattiness add complexity.
Flavor is, at first, somewhat sweet, with caramel malt serving as a nice backdrop for muted grapefruit and strong resin. The finish is moderately bitter. Notes of pine emerge as it warms, and the citrus character strengthens.
Body is moderately full and slightly creamy, with moderate carbonation, slight astringency, and notable alcohol warmth.
Certainly not the most complex hop character, but a good amount of malt to stand up to the hops without overwhelming, and not overly bitter.

Poured from the 16oz. can into a glass.
Pours a nice, hazy straw color with a long-lasting one-finger head that leaves some lacy foam trailing down the glass as the beer disappears.
The aroma is mostly sweet citrus.
My tongue is hit with big citrus flavors up front - grapefruit, a little orange as well and then comes a wave of piney resins and a zingy, bubbly finish.
The mouthfeel is medium, and slightly sticky and well carbed.
Overall, just an outstanding IPA not normally available to me (darn).
