look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Clear golden color with a 1/2 finger head that quickly settles to a fine lacing
S: Nice grapefruit & light malt notes. Simple but elegant.
T: Also light & elegant with clean grapefruit/malt notes.
M: Light-bodied, crisp and clean. Doesn't show its nearly 7% ABW in either weight or viscosity.
O: This is the perfect example of a beer that shows an IPA doesn't have to be in your face and bold to be well-made. Simple, clean, elegant and refreshing.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass.

A: This one pours a clear gold with a small white head. Mid-range visible carbonation.

S: A bit more blah than I expected - sweet malts are forward, slightly boozy, and slight fruity hops.

T: Seems muted - malts, no particular hop flavor I can find but does have hop bitterness. There is some woody dryness.

M: Thinner mouthfeel than I want. No alcohol burn but still leaves a slightly boozy impression.

O: Nothing off-putting, but nothing particularly good. Wouldn't go out of my way for this one again.
