Pours a dark golden hue with a huge head into my glass. I'm hoping this will edge out their pale ale.

Light and crisp with a HUGE dollop of citrus. It reminds me of other beers with a similar profile.

Very tasty with grapefruit and sweet, bready malt.

Finishes clean with that great citrus hop bite.

Much better choice here.

The body is very clean with a thin paleness but the head mounts thickly.

The aroma is bitter and floral but gives off a sour fruit. Grapefruit and lemon, pine resin, pithy rind and caramel malts can all be found.

The flavor is more to the bitter herbal but a sour grapefruit rind exists. Deeply underneath a tea leaf malt flavor runs thick. The hops are pithy bitter but not brash and deeply resined.

The feel is slick, bitter but not too astringent.

This was a very inexpensive craft beer but had a lot of good hop bitterness and sufficient malt support.

I've always been curious about these beers at TJ's, but skeptical since they're never refrigerated. I ventured to pick one up, since it was remarkably fresh (~3 weeks old), bottled 12/31/2013, and at $5.99/6 pack it wasn't going to break the bank - so why not!

Poured at fridge temperature from a stubby 12oz bottle into my pint glass.
A - Looks clean and slightly amber in color when held up against light. About an inch of head that receded after a minute or two, and left some lacing as it went down. Good stuff!

S - Oh yes, very piney and floral. Getting some malty caramel as well. Some lemon and grass notes detected as well. This one leans towards the citrusy side on the aromatics.

T - Follows the smell. A very good balance between the malt and the hops. I detect slight sweetness upfront but the hops kick in rightaway and from then on it drinks like a grapefruit juice. The beer finishes dry, with lasting grassy bitterness on the palate. I detect some mint in the finish as well. Just the way I like my IPAs. I imagine this would pair extremely well with some meat dishes - grilled and slightly seasoned. Very well done!

M - Medium and creamy. Impressive again!

O - This is an excellent brew, and at that price I see myself buying this over and over again. Easily compares to some well known IPAs that retail at a slightly higher price point.
