Dark honey color with reddish hues. Foamy white head which slowly dissolves and leaves an intricate lacing. Impressive look.
The devil is in the aroma. All citrusy/grapefruit/lemon juicy hops.
Even though the hops dominate the flavor there is a very well balanced malt background.
Smooth mouthfeel with the hop bitterness. Grapefruit lingers on the tongue.
Drinkablity is similar to most IPA's, as long as you don't get tired of the hops they'll keep going down smooth.
An outstanding IPA.

This is a beer! The pint glass shows a beautiful copper color with a cap of nice creamy foam. The nose is mostly hops. The medium bodied beer rolls across the palate with a wallop of hops. A small hint of malt muscles its way through the assault of hops. The overwhelmed taste buds retain the strong hop flavor after the beer is gone. This beer will please hop heads, but also has a pleasant delightfulness that all will enjoy.
