A- Slightly cloudy pale orange-gold. Off white foam, hold well to abut a quarter inch of foam that leaves a nice lace

S- citrusy punch, toasty grain

T- pretty much like it smells, but it smells more like grapefruit than it smells, the toasted grain comes through more in the flavor

M- bitterness sticks to the back of the tongue nicely

There is no real wow factor to this beer, but I appreciate it as it would make grate beer with food, or a great option for a beer that I could sit around and drink all day, very well balanced

Great color on this one: clouded gold amber. Nose is really nice too at first. It seems to calm quickly. Flavor profile is good. Consistent and smooth. Nice level of bitterness that I appreciate. Smooth pine and citrus elements. Feel is good. This is a nice, easy drinking ipa. I could go for several of these. And I would definitely jump on the chance to try this via cask.

Thanks to Grendle for this one. Haven't had anything from Real Ale in quite some time and I'm very happy to have the chance to again.

6/14/2014 - In addition, just opened the second bottle that was sent to me and it's still really good? Wha?? Citrus is still there in abundance. Not overly complex, but a nice drinker. Not at all what I expected after such an obnoxiously long period of time.
