Very good. I'm fairly new to IPAs but this one is smooth and easy to drink.

Appearance:
Clear amber body with plenty of carbonation at first, but then settles down. The head is light and foamy with gap here and there, but it does stick around for a bit. There is a thin lacing around the glass.

Smell:
Strong hops and floral aromas come through, grapefruit zest and caramel all smell good.

Taste:
Strong hops up front and bitter through out, the malts come in mid tongue and then a slight alcohol flavor in the aftertaste along with some mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel:
Medium bodied and lots of carbonation and very smooth.

Overall:
It looks really inviting upon first sight, the aromas really make you thirsty and its smoother than expected. This is a great IPA and you shouldn't skip out on this one.
