A: hazy, really hazy like a heff. bronze burnt color, nice lacing that doesn't give up.
S: for an IPA this beer is not a bomb, it's a pleasant hop aroma, not in your face by any means . Hops are citrus and pine smelling.
T: firm malt backbone, lots of bread tones. Tasted like it had a lager malt, checked and it has been brewed with Vienna malts. Great toasted flavor.
M: lighter than most IPA'S. a few bubbles not a heavy beer or sweet. Clean finishing with a lingering bitterness.
O: overall I rated this beer high, a 4. Why? I think there are many awesome IPA'S out there that have full flavored sweet profiles ie lagunitas brown Shuga, little sumpin also dogfish head 120 minute. This is the first one that I have tried that has gone a different way with a different mouthfeel that has actually been good. Actually really good. I am sure there are others but I haven't tried them yet. Good beer different approach.

I appreciate the strong presence of grapefruit in this beer and it's rich golden-orange color. Lacking a bit in the mouth feel and the hops-sweetness balance, the smell is also a bit weak. Overall though, refreshing, citrusy, crisp, a solid ipa but not overly impressive. About the level of quality I've come to expect from Real Ale Brewing.

A-almost clear golden color that has a small white head that fades fast and leaves a lacing
S-grapefruit, pine, and some lemon
T-slight hop taste at first then you get the hop kick in the aftertaste that gives you a grapefruit dry finish
M- light body and medium carbonation
O-this was not an overpowering hop flavor beer, but solid
