Poured from a 12oz glass into a high sided pilsner glass.

Look is a clear orange amber with a white head.

Aroma is aggressive hops with a deep rich caramel malt.

Taste is a delicious combo of malt and hops.

Excellent beer.

Had a bottle at D'agnese Italian restaurant in Richfield Ohio. Served in a pint glass, this beer was a clear, amber color with a small white head. Good lacing and retention. Aroma and flavor featured citrus (grapefruit) and dry, biscuity malt. Good strong favor and nice level of bitterness. Mouthfeel is crisp and rich with the balance favoring the hops. I would drink this one again.

First had poured from 12-oz. bottle, neck stamped “BOTTLED ON 06/11/18,” into hotel water glass. You are greeted at the door with a huge hop hug, then malt slides over, says hello and hangs around, while hops firmly but friendly escort you to an IPA throw down.

Horse a clear, copper - Orange with a one finger off - White head. Good combination with some lacing.
A wonderful smell of citrus hop. Gives off more of a melon, mango and orange Citrus smell. Also a sweet candy smell.
The Taste follows the smell and includes pineapple. A wonderful combination of Citrus and pine bitterness and malt. This one is spot-on!
Good dankness that resinated.
This one was worth the wait.

Draft at the Industry. Clear body, medium golden, soft fluffy head. . Pretty gentle, but wonderful malt profile. Fairly smooth throughout, despite its claim of being aggressive. Pretty lavorful, nice feel.

Pours a medium amber, coppery coloration with a medium, fizzy head. Smells of caramel malt, citrus/tropical fruit: grapefruit, pineapple and pine. Taste is quite malty and resinous, with strong hoppy accents. Notes of caramel malt, citrus/tropical fruit: grapefruit, pineapple and pine. Finishes with a medium/strong bitterness and a good bit of pine coming through in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation. I'm not even sure if I know what East/West Coast IPA is anymore, but this a great example of that typical, resinous, malty, citrus bitter IPA, but with a tropical twist. Personally, I could very well do without that pretty dominant pineapple note, but a great brew nonetheless.
