Thanks Reja, bottled 5/2/13 (about 3 wks old)

The beer pours a rich looking golden yellow with great effervescence fueling a dense white head that laces and remains as a thin blanketing throughout drinking. The nose presents potent notes of caramelized sugars, malt, fresh citrusy hops and subtle grapefruit. It's definitely more reserved than I'd expected; more aromatic hops would have elevated it to my expectations, without significantly altering its status as an AIPA. I think it drinks very well, distinctly malty with fresh hops lingering on the palate. It's drinkability and mouthfeel are really where this beer excels (in my opinion) presenting a rich, clean malty sweetness, layered citrus hops, and a mild, lingering bitterness that coats the palate. No grapefruit rind aftertaste, good effervescence, and a touch of caramel. Great beer that I'd soon consume again if bottles were available my way.
