Had on tap. Pours cloudy orange-brown in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is grapefruit, pine resin, and light citrus and toasted malt. Bitter, medium-heavy bodied with moderate carbonation. Makes for a slightly above average hoppy beer. Worth trying, but there are several other local IPAs I prefer.

Pours a clear copper, leaves a fizzy white head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaves a moderate amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell is fairly mute, light hoppy fruit aroma and that is it.

Taste is pleasantly fruity, with grapefruit and tropical fruit notes, for 120 IBU, it is very balanced and not overwhelming at all. Still cakes my tongue with a bit of resinous bitter, but certainly nothing that turns me away. Find the malt takes much backseat to the hops.

Medium light bodied, leaves very clean, but not crisp.

Surprising to find an IPA that has some balance to it's flavor, and wouldn't turn it down if I was offered some.

Consumed 3/6/17

A: Dark orange with some light amber at the core and some tangerine around the edges - some chill haze - pours with a small white head, fades to a wispy cap and a small collar, leaves some nice streaks of lacing

S: Big punch of citrus - orange and grapefruit juice - grapefruit peel - candied citrus - floral citrus - grassy with some sharp pine needles - vaguely tropical - caramel grains and some toast at the base

T: Orange and grapefruit juice, basically - grapefruit peel, pith, oil - candied citrus - floral citrus - decidedly juicy in many ways, yet not a trendy juice bomb - oily - grassy with some sharp pine needles - an interesting sweet citrus fruit in the aftertaste, probably the elusive Buddha’s hand - earthy bitterness, very bitter overall - caramel at the base, alcohol is mostly hidden

M: On the heavy side of medium, slick and oily, medium carbonation, finishes mostly dry

O: By the hand of Buddha

Is there such a thing as too much citrus? Maybe. I understand the urge to add grapefruit to a DIPA, but part of me wishes they had just included Buddha's hand to better showcase that flavor. There's just a bit too much grapefruit oil and pith in here for me to highly recommend it. It's definitely interesting though.
