Poured into my standard pint glass, this beer produced a whopping four finger head. Body was clear amber. Nice look for an IPA.
Aroma started with strong pine hops, then some grapefruit made its presence known. A little bit of fruity/floral character followed, but had to be looked for. The malt was well hidden.
Taste was initially bitter hop resins and pine. A slight sweetness followed. Some caramel malt flavor was there as well.
Mouthfeel was syrupy, and it seemed to leave a coating on my tongue. OK, but not what I was looking for.
Overall an average American IPA. Hop character was there, a little lacking on the malt, and the consistency was a little off.
