Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: It poured a very nice amber to copper color with a 1/2 inch head. There was a pretty nice amount of lacing on the glass.

S: This beer has a very inviting smell. It is very citrusy and it has some floral notes. The grapefruit smell is the most noticeable.

T: The grapefruit smell carries over into the taste. It has a strong citrus grapefruit taste with a slight floral after taste.

M: Very nice carbonation and smoothness at the same time. The combination makes this a very drinkable beer.

O: I am not normally a huge fan of IPAs but every now and then I find one that I really enjoy. This is one of those rare IPAs that I find drinkable and enjoyable.

I've had a lot of hype when it came to this beer which adds a unique spice to an IPA but one that I am not to find of.
First opening this beer, I was impressed by its smell and moved quickly to get a taste in. The beer first hit as a great bitter to a kind of spicy ting at the end. It provided me with interest at first taste but for some reason after the first taste I lacked the full first experience and was dismayed. Waited a little bit and tried it again and it provided a decent taste. I'm not a fan of this beer but I can see the uniqueness of spicy ting that some may appreciate.
