L: A dull Golden amber appearance (yellowish/orange)
S: Smells of grapefruit, pretty light though
T: Tastes like a normal IPA, bitter, with a nice jolt of grapefruit/citrus
F: This beer is extremely light while drinking it, but leaves you with the dry-ish feeling IPAs generally give you.
Overall: A good IPA in my book, I can check this off my bucket list for it being one of Ohio's top 10, but not my favorite IPA so far.
