Pours two finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma is a strong grapefruit and lemon mixture. Bold and good.
The taste has big grapefruit bitterness up front, with some lemon bitter in the middle and rounds out with a medium long bitter finish. Good balance.
The texture is crisp.
It's a solid enjoyable IPA.

12 oz bottle into tulip. best before AUG 2014.
A: bright gold, beautiful clarity. single stream of carb rising through the center of the glass. bubbly bright white head. good lacing.
S: citrus, resinous, piney. pretty standard IPA-ish aroma. inviting, pleasant, but certainly not over-the-top in any way possible.
T: a smack of pine hoppiness starts things off. a hint of booze in the finish, but just for a moment. turns to a mild graininess after. its piney more than citrus to me.
M: average carb level, medium bodied brew.
D: a good beer for sure, but might fall a little middle of the road all things considered when you say "west coast style IPA". just missing that uber bright citrus explosion I expect when a beer is advertised as such. regardless, a good brew non-the-less.

Served in a shaker pint glass at Chasers - Lake Zurich.
I wanted to try something new on tap while visiting Chasers for the first time, and this was the only one I hadn't yet had before. Done. It pours a clear sunrise brass topped by a half-finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises flowers, mild grass, very mild pine, and a soft breeze of caramel in the distance. The taste brings in more of the same, the flowers and grass a touch brighter, but not very much at all. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, an okay IPA at best, overtly mild and approaching boring.
Serving type: on-tap
