Color- Light Yellow/Gold. Pretty light with medium to light head
Aroma- Hop forward with pine and citrus notes
Taste- Intense grapefruit flavor. Not overwhelming but certainly fairly present. Interesting, because it starts a little slow, but revs-up in the second half and pushes forward with the grapefruit.
MF- Just about right for carbonation. Enough to know that it is there, but not so much that it overwhelms and takes away from the taste.
This beer is a little bit lighter in appearance than I expected from an ipa. The nose is certainly that of an ipa. The taste is interesting, because it is subtle when it hits your pallet and then the backend fills-in with flavor. I love the name of name of this beer, because the appearance and the frontend give you the illusion that this beer is light in flavor and then reveals the flavor at the end. Overall, I think this a good ipa. The hops are heavier in grapefruit than I expect in an ipa, but it is accessible for the non-hopheads out there.
