12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

Pours a hazy orange with one finger of foam that doesn't leave much lacing. Smell is in your face with abundant notes of grapefruit and citrus. Smells wonderful.

This IPA is on the malty side, with a full, sweet body. However, it is backed up with a huge hop flavor and refreshing bitterness. The fruity hop flavors really steal the show, leaving no doubt that this is an IPA.

The carbonation is light, leading to a smooth feeling on the palate. The lingering bitterness is present, but not overpowering... just about right.

All in all this is a damn fine IPA, and at 7.5% ABV, this one will sneak up on you!

EDIT: I've had this again on 2/6/11, and I have to bump up the smell to perfect. This beer smells top-notch. such a huge hoppy aroma.
