Amazing, grapefruit and tangerine in the beginning and piney hops at the finish. I love it!

Pours a light yellow color with a one finger thick white head. Smells of pine, pineapple, mango, orange peel, the slight burn of alcohol. Taste is grapefruit and a lingering resin bitterness.

Nose: Pine and citrus nose over malt.
Brilliant copper amber under a thick, finely bubbled, persistent slightly off-white foam cap.
The palate in this hop forward beer starts with biscuit malt seasons with light caramel and then the citrusy pine takes over. The citrus , melon and pineapple notes on the palate seem more from the hops than yeast.
Creamy medium body with medium high carbonation with a very fine bead.

A: Dark, dehydrated urine color. 1 finger of head on top with fluffy, laced foam

S: Fresh grass, melon, mango, a little bit of lemon and pine

T: NIce clean hoppy ipa. Not too bitter, not too malty, just right. Mango in the beginning and a little hoppy bite at the end. Little bit of bitterness that tastes like grapefruit pith.

M: Slight carbonation with a slight bitterness that lingers for a few seconds.

O: This is a great IPA. After having it a 2nd time, I've upped my rating from a 4 to a 4.5. I really enjoyed this much better after having it before and now I'm glad that the stores nearby carry it locally.
