Hazy golden color. Smells sweet like graham crackers. More malty than bitter for an IPA. As I've noticed with DuClaw, the first half of this beer was better than the second half.

Rich copper, nice lingering head. Smells of tangerine, pineapple, and caramel. Very inviting. The fruits are not nearly as dominant in the flavor as the hops bring some peppery earthiness. Finishes pleasantly bitter, and provides an oily mouthfeel and nice medium body. I must say that I was about to give up on Duclaw's IPAs, but this one is flat out good.

Light golden color, clear with whiteish-gold head and nice lacing. Aroma is nice and hoppy with hints of citrus, especially grapefruit. Taste is similar to aroma with the grapefruit really shining. Decent bitterness, but not overwhelming, and balanced very nicely..
