Pours a clear golden color with a solid half inch cream head that leaves a solid sheet of lacing to the rim.
Floral hops mingle with fresh cut grass, pine, and grapefruit, overwhelming the subtle cracker-like malt backbone.
Flavor reveals more malt character, slightly sweet and bready, with a fairly dry, slightly bitter finish. Skunky hops, with notes of lime, grapefruit, herbal hops, and a bit of catty dankness add complexity.
Body is is moderate, with carbonation on the high side of moderate, and a somewhat astringent finish.
Overall, a nice, hoppy brew, with substantial malt backbone. Less citrusy than most, more dank, skunky focus.
Serving type: on-tap

4.25/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A-pours a clear, goldish type color with a two finger head and plenty of lacing
S-heavy citrus including lemon/lime, pineapple, maybe tangerine..not so much grapefruit smell, it has more of a sweeter citrus aroma
T-strong hop bite that doesn't linger too aggressively; traditional citrus peel with some grapefruit type flavors in the taste
M-not too thin, enough carbonation; fairly dry but not overly harsh aftertaste
O-a really solid IPA that delivers more on the aroma than the taste; it uses light malts to really highlight the hop aroma, but I wish there was a bit more pop in the taste

12 oz bottle into a Hoffman House chalice. Dated 10-08-12 - four days ago!
A - Brilliantly clear deep gold with a large, bright white head that falls into a thick crown.
S - Exotic tropical fruits with a resiny, green background note.
T - Inital soft honey-sweet maltiness quickly transitions into a veritable fruit salad of hop flavors with a firm, but clean bitterness. Kiwi, passionfruit and pineapple. Finish is bone dry with only mild bitterness and subtle remaining fruitiness.
M - Medium body with medium carbonation.
O - One of the finest southern hemisphere IPAs available, and at a bargain price. Buy it by the case.
