Thanks to HopFace for the opportunity to try. Served in a shaker pint. Pours a translucent burnt orange with a loose, half-inch, cream-colored head. Great nose - grapefruit, tropical fruit and hints of Simcoe and citrus rind towards the back. Taste expresses less fruitiness and more Simcoe and rind in the forefront with grapefruit (not as sweet) towards the back. Finishes with a light and pleasant herbal bittering between quaffs. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a pleasant carbonation that falls just shy of crisp and biting. There's a slight acidity that lightly stimulates the salivary glands and also a little maltiness to the body. Overall, a solid IPA. If I had regular access to this, it would be part of my standard line-up.
