A: Pours crisp orange with a thumb of white head that does not linger. Good lacing though.
S: Super citruy grapefruit aroma with lots of pine and floral notes. I also pick up a decent amount of malty notes as well as a slight spiciness.
T: I get malt up front very rich and caramel like, followed by an amazing plythora of hop flavors. The citrus is by far the most notable with a spicy grapefruit like essence. The bitterness is not overpowering at all, just perfect, well balanced with the malt, and the alcohol just present if I let the beer linger in my mouth.
M: Heavy body, nice carbonation, very rich and warm.
D: I was expecting a typical over hoped American IPA when I picked this out, boy am I glad I was wrong, this is an increadable IPA.
