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.

Yellow-orange, hazy appearance with some sediment. Nice fluffy sugar-white head. The aroma was appealing with grapefruit and orange sweetness overwhelming my nose. The flavor itself was much more better than the nose let on, with piny, and mostly resinous hop tastes. Very, very dry. Overall, there isn't much too this one, but it is good, solid, and very drinkable... I'm glad they offer this in cans.

The bottom of the can has two digit year and then Julian date. 13052. Brewed on 2/13/13. Three months old, but the beer still really held up on this can.

This beer comes in a deep rich golden orange color that quite clear. There is a small one finger head that dissipates quickly with some sticking to the glass. Nice looking beer.

The aroma has juicy orange, orange peel, some grapefruit, and some sweet biscuit malt and honey. There’s some grassiness in there too.

The flavor is pretty close to that. You get an upfront orange and slight grapefruit. There isn’t much sweetness in the malt backbone. A very dank

The finish is quite strong and dry on this one as it slowly just grows and grows and then really gives you a grapefruit peel aftertaste. Just a crisp finish, but very assertive.

The highlight of this beer is the wonderful strong finish, despite being 6.5%. In general, the beer really reminds me of Stone IPA with its color, aroma, hop profile, etc. Just an extremely solid IPA.
