Crystal clear deep orange color, thick light tan head on top of this brew. Fades to a thick lace and after some tine just a thick ring around my glass is left behind. Smell of hops is in the nose, grapefruit is the first to get your attention but a caramel hint of malt is behind it. Taste is hops up front, the citrus flavor coming up with its bitterness and then the malt comes to play for a spell but is quickly washed away by another attach of hops. A bit sticky on the lip sand smooth across the pallet which is a good thing here. Drinkability? How does all night sound! This brew has a nice mixture of hops and malt flavors that keep you satisfied. A must to try,

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that died down rather quickly, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of floral and citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of orange citrus along with hints of caramel malts and floral hops along with a very slight amount of bitterness. Some hints of watermelon are also perceptible.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I felt that this beer seemed to be somewhat weak for an IPA because it didn't deliver much in the way of bitterness from the hops. Apart from this, it is quite balanced and easy to drink.
