4.5/5 rDev +6.1%
A: Bit of a hazy yellow pour with a few fingers of white head. A nice amount of bubbles work their way up through the body of the beer, and hold up the small amount of head remaining that laces nicely.
S: Big grapefruit aroma with a nice pine character to balance it out. I do think I'm getting some malts underneath. Much more citrus than is customary of an American IPA.
T: The taste continues the aroma, but is even more focused on the citrus and grapefruit. Just a refreshing amount of fruit that doesn't get old as you work through the bottle. Pine is there for a nice bitterness, but the malt seems to have disappeared beneath the vast hoppiness.
MF: The body is light to medium with a lower than average carbonation. It goes down crisp with a slightly dry finish. The fruitiness coats the entirety of the mouth.
O: This beer is delicious. Make sure to get it fresh, because once the hops fade the fruit becomes too much for me.

Served in a mug
A: Pours a hazy golden amber color with a substantial amount of frothy white head. leaves a decent amount of lacking in the glass
S: Strong citrusy smell reminiscent of grapefruit, strong hop presence
T: Very nice bitterness and citrus like taste that really wakes up the taste buds across the tongue. Citrus taste is not as strong as the smell would allude
M: Slight carbonation tingle, leaves a nice bitter note on the back of the tongue with the finish
D: Such a great tasting and smelling brew that it is a real chore to try not to guzzle down all of it in one go.
Overall, i absolutely loved this brew. I have had it before and was not as impressed but this time around it blew my socks off
