3.88/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
12oz. bottle poured into a curved pint glass
A- a deep, clear gold with a finger of thick head. Nice lacing.
S- Grapefruit with some orange peel. A faint grassiness is there as well as some crackery malt.
T- Not overly complex, but it certainly works. A well blended flavor of grapefruit/orange peel/grassy hops blends with a faint sweetness of cracker type malt. Bitterness hits fairly hard on the backend for a single IPA.
M- Lighter side of medium body, medium carbonation. Very dry on the end due to the increase in bitterness.
O- A straightforward, but very aggressively bitter IPA. I've had better, but certainly have had much worse.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a Sam Adams pint glass
Flows into the glass a beautiful crystal-clear gold with lots of carbonation. A stiff pour yields a massive head, very foamy with big bubbles. It condenses fairly fast and leaves a a lot of lacing.
The aroma is quite nice. I get citrus, pine, a bit of rising bread, orange peel, grass and a hint of onion.
This beer tastes great. Layers of hop flavors. Juicy citrus up front, some pine and a nice lingering and spicy bitterness. As it warms, a little bit of grassiness and even a hint of onion. There's also some malty sweetness hiding in the background.
The mouthfeel is light to medium with a bit of stickiness.
overall, a really good IPA that I wish I could obtain on a regular basis.
