Amber color with a thin thick head with short retention.
Nice aroma with grapefruit and piney notes.
Hoppy flavor with notes of grapefruit, peppery American yeast, pine cones, slightly toasted malts and flowers. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness.
Medium body with proper carbonation.
Reliable and by the book assertive American IPA, meaning a good solid IPA. I would sure drink this again.
