look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle carefully decanted into a Hoffman House chalice. Bottled on 08/20/12.

A - Crystal clear golden with a large, tightly packed, foamy white head. Gorgeous.

S - Massive citrusy grapefruit. Hard to get past.

T - Bready malt and slight caramel with massive fruity hop flavors. Transitions into a hop bitterness that is the very picture of clean. Bone. Dry. Finish.

M - Light body with medium to low carbonation. Only thing I can stick it for. Probably varies from batch to batch.

O - I want more. This is the photograph of an american IPA. Classic example of the style.
