A: Pours a golden color with 2+ fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves sticky lacing down the glass

S: Some earthy and citrusy hops balanced out by a sturdy maltiness. A bit of fruity yeastiness as well

T: Follows the nose. Balanced from the start, with a mix of citrus, fruitiness, grassy/earthiness, and a bit of breadiness. Bitter throughout

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A little on the prickly/abrasive side

O: A solid IPA that is very well balanced and extremely easy to drink. The IBUs definitely smack you around a little towards the end, as there is almost no residual sweetness to counteract the bitterness. If you're really into juicy IPAs, stay away. Otherwise, pick some up

Nose: well balanced between citrusy, resiny hops and rich malt. Hops exhibit some grapefruit notes and you can also smell some caramel from the malt.
Pours brilliant amber under a 2" bone white finely bubbled foam cap.
Medium to medium high carbonation, medium body.
On the palate the hops are medium high with big grapefruit flavors riding on a caramel seasoned malt backbone.
Drinkable and refreshing.

Crystal clear apricot orangey yellow with an eggshell colored head that settles out slowly. Aroma of citrus and pine, some floral and minty hops.

Flavor is similar to the nose, lots of citrus and piney hops, moderate bitterness, but well balanced with a honey malt backbone. Semi slick mouthfeel, finishes tingly. Good beer.
