This one didn't do much for me. Maybe expectations were too high. I'm not new to IPAs, but this one is too bitter for my taste. Almost all of the flavors seem piled up at the bitter end, so for me they really didn't unfold as I swallowed and exhaled. I am somewhat sensitive to bitter and sour flavors, so that probably plays a role.

A - Pours a murky dark amber. Forms a finger of off-white creamy head. Leaves whispy lacing.
S - The aroma reminds me HEAVILY of Lagunita's Lil Sumpin' ale. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple, peach and piney citrusy hops.
T - Crisp and bitter. Not much sweetness in here. More of a savory IPA than a sweet one to be sure. Lots of grapefruit meat and rind and piney floral hops. Is very crisp and refreshing, but not a good beginners IPA due to it's quite high bitterness.
O - A quite good IPA, my "go to" session beer.
V - Very good, comes in a six pack of cans.

I've always had easy access to this one so I usually pass, but decided to give it a whirl... Very pleasant surprise!
