Pours a three finger lightly-yellowed head over a brilliant light golden liquid. The fine clingy foam gently caves into a sticky layer that persists throughout the pint and laces nicely. Smells potently of piney hops with strong grassy umph. Baby aspirin and lightly of oranges and lemon.

Tastes resinous piney, grapefruit pith, baby aspirin, drying lemon, acidic from overdose of piney hop bittering. Little in the way of esters (hint of apricot) or grain flavor (bready). Overall, thin in the mouth, very drying, modest clean alcohol sting, and lingering fresh pine fades quickly. A decent IPA.

A solid IPA from CBCB. Looks pretty nice. Golden, somewhat clear, with a white cap. Lacing is thin and cap disappears. No biggie.

Boozy a bit on the nose. Sweet biscuit, bread dough. Hint of caramel. Citrus and green pine

The grapefruit comes on strong with the flavor, which is the best part of the beer. Those IPAs that are resiny and sharp just overpower the rest. With this one, the flavor is more balanced, but still hop forward. Wet bread dough and light biscuit offer a sweetness. Green pine comes in on the end just before the bite...

...which is somewhat light. In a way, that's good, but it doesn't finish dry. The biscuit lingers as does the booze.

Solid beer

On tap at the brewery. Yellow color, sort of light, decent head. Aroma is pretty hoppy, grapefruit and citrus. Flavor is definitely hoppy, not much malt, lost of grapefruit and citrus. A nice IPA and one I would consider getting a growler of if it weren't $15. No point in buying growlers once they are 50% more expensive than a comparable sixer of superior IPA (Stone, Lagunitas, Odell, etc).
