Much thanks to Raider for this one.

Appearance
Almost clear dark amber ale with slight coppery and brown tinge. A thin off white head formed on the pour which faded into scant lacings. Finely carbonated.

Aroma
Grapefruit (citrus and pine) predominates overtop of floral, bready, and caramel scents.

Taste
Sweet floral and bready flavours with caramel are almost immediately smothered in a powerful grapefruit flavour from the hops. The taste ends in an almost tea like or grapefruit peal like astringency.

Mouthfeel
This is a wonderfully balanced and bold example of the american IPA style. It has a substantial malt body which is wonderfully offset by the powerful yet not too bitter hoppiness. The carbonation aids in delivering this wonderful flavour contrast and combination.

Drinkability
This is a very drinkable ale, and due to its balance and bold flavour the alcohol content sneaks by unnoticed. This is not a beer for those faint of hops and probably isnt a great IPA to introduce a hop novice to. If you like hops, however, this is a great beer, and it goes down very easy. Ill be drinking this one again.
