Had on draft at Alpine on 4/2/14

A-Pours a light tangerine hue with a nice, 1.5 finger frothy white head that leaves decent lacing on the way down.

S-Grassy, Citrus, tons of grapefruit, mixed with light sweet fruits.

T-Bready and a tad spicy that leads into lots of citrus, blood orange, tangerine, grapefruit and has a nice bitter finish.

M-Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O-This was wonderfully complex and balanced and one of the best IPAs i’ve ever tasted, bar none.
