Thought I would try a local beer(brewery is about 30-40 minutes away). Can is very attractive with lots of formulas and history on it. Head is ok, not much. Smell is awesome with a huge hit of grapefruit at the start. Taste is similar with a massive grapefruit-pine hit right away on the palate. Grapefruit-citrus goes away fast and the hop bitterness lingers. Fine with me. Overall, a nice IPA that attacks quick and then mellows rather fast. Overall, nice beer !!

A good, easy drinking, albeit dry tasting brew. Very satisfying. Probably could use more citrus and spice flavors. The mouthfeel is very solid- not too light or thin at all. Lots of carbonation bubbles and nice hazy color. The hops, while prevalent, are not too overpowering. Not a bad brew.

Fairly decent IPA, somehow I was expecting more. Poured into a pint glass. The head was fairly small with average retention. Some lacing on the glass. Smell was citrus hops, not that strong but pleasant enough.

Taste was somewhat more impressive. Citrus hops, bready malt backbone but hops are more prominent and fairly decent level of bitterness.

Mouthfeel is about average for richness, crisp with some bitterness.

Pleasant enough but not something I would be dying to try again.
