Beer is a clear golden colour. Moderately sized white head, dissipates quickly but not completely. Some lace.

Pine resin in the nose, as well as citrus. Mainly grapefruit.

Taste is hoppy. Citrus focused, grapefruit and orange, with a bunch of sticky pine as well. Caramel malt provides a backbone but the focus of this beer is the hops.

Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, oily.

Overall, a good IPA. In my view, not the standout that its scores suggest. Without a freshness date, I guess it is possible that this bottle is a bit old and would be better fresher- though it tastes fine to me.
