Bottle from over a year ago, thanks to Dan. Attractive apricot color, cloudy, tiny white head. Smell is sweetness & citrus hops. Taste is bitter citrus notes up-front, also sweet. On the sides of the mouth, bitterness. Going down, more bitterness. Finish is bitter, like grapefruit. Guessing this is a 8-9% IIPA. Mouthfeel light-medium, low carbonation, a little sticky. Overall I like the orangey/grapefruit flavor. But it's a bit of a one-trick pony and wears out its welcome pretty quickly. Its uncomplicated bitterness asks to be paired against something sweet, like a shot of bourbon.
