Awesome gold color with decent carbonation. Smells of citrus with some wheat and hops behind it. Very good. Hoppy taste is excellent with minimum pale aftertaste that a lot of iPAs have. Not an over powering IPA but I like that.

Enjoyed on tap in NYC. Spot on in terms of composition and overall feel. This is far from the best IPA and equally far from the worst. I'm glad I had the opportunity to try this beer out.

Had this in a bottle. Seemed to be a bit skunky. Color was good. Once it aired a bit in my glass got better. I'm sure this is a better beer on tap.

On tap in a pint glass.

A- Golden amber color, soft focus look. White head, 1F, fat rings of lacing.

S- Citrus and malt aromas. Dry biscuit and bread.

T- Lots of grapefruit, dry rind. Bready malt.

M- Tart, some bitterness. Good body for a light ipa.

O-Nice take on a light ipa.

Pours nicely with not a big head at all. Very drinkable and not too hoppy. Has a slight lingering taste on the palate, not an extremely crisp finish, but quite an easy-drinking IPA that is not too high in ABV. I would buy again.

This is a GRAPEFRUITY beer....the scent is so grapefruit is almost skunk like. The taste is bitter with grapefruit. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with smooth carbonation. I would not buy this again.
