Bought from Morgan's Liquor store in Denver CO

A&S: pungent grapefruit aroma right off the bat. Large (2 fingers) white fizzy head that has good retention and leaves good lacing. Transparent and lively light copper colored beer.

T&M: Again great grapefruit taste. Mild malty backbone present in the background. On the large side of bitterness in the finish, but not overwhelming. Medium bodied but still pretty crisp, medium-low carbonation.

Overall: Very impressed by this beer. Basic but not over-simplified. Had a hard time describing why I like this beer but I do.

Since IPAs are my favorite beers... I really enjoyed this one. I typically drink Stone and Luganitas, but this is a good one and I have tried a lot of IPAs. The taste is well balanced and the hops are well balanced and not overwhelming. I really enjoyed this IPA beer and recommend it for others to try.
