12oz bottle poured into Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a dense deep amber color. Ample head and resilient lacing that formed rings around the glasses. Very prominent grapefruit scent. Resiny texture. Grapefruit, citrus start to the taste, a little sweetness from the malt backbone and very mild bitterness in the aftertaste. This one surprised me. I hadn't heard of it before I tried it. Excellent. (9.0)

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter. Date on bottle is 10/22/14. Not sure how i missed it but it must have gotten buried in cellar during holidays.
Pours a bright clear copper hue and a dense tightly packed bleached white head of 3 cm foams up and fades to a sturdy edge layer. Sipping the beer leaves windowpane lattice and I end up with some wispy islands on the surface.
Aroma is rindy grapefruit and a bit of pine sap mixing, with only mild notes of caramel malt. In general the nose isnt huge on this, maybe bigger if I drank it two months ago? This is as expected a hop forward beer.
First sip reveals an average body with smooth texture and very fine and tingly carbonation.
Flavor is similar to nose with wisps of caramel that concede quickly to some citrusy hops and some grass, with a bit of general astringent bitterness. Very dry finish and lingering vegetal bite after each sip.
No real booze presence that I can detect. A nice fairly easy drinking IPA. Good mix of hop notes and dry finish makes me want to drink more after each sip.

On draft, this gets a 5/5.

In bottles, 4/5. It seems to fall off fast and I've had a few fresh batches taste a bit off.
