Pours into a tulip glass a nice looking blonde brew, with a scant head.

The aroma is of sweet tangerine and birthday cake. The malt comes across as a mild, wet cardboard and Rice Krispies in milk.

In the mouth the sweet citrus precedes a bitter pine. Whoa is the pine bitter! The malt backbone tries mightily to pull it all together, and is mostly successful, though the pine bitterness is a bit much. ABV is hardly there.

Medium-bodied and slick on the palate.

This is very much my style of IIPA: sweet, malty, fruity. The one drawback is, as it warms, the grain turns a bit leathery AND THE SWEETNESS GETS A BIT CLOYING -- starts to remind me of an over-sweet English barley wine, like Anchor Old Foghorn (though not as bad as North Coast Old Stock!) But at $7/four-pk., I'll take this any day of the week.

Pours a dark copper color with a smallish head and bits of lacing. Aroma of Grapefruit, bit of pine with some malt sweetness and grain.Taste of grapefruit, malt, mild caramel sweetness and bit of grain. Nice bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Medium body, crisp and clean. Nicely balanced as the 8.5% ABV is well hidden. Has a bit of character.Enjoyable beer, much better than I expected.
