No pkg date.
Amber hue with oatmeal head with decent lacing.
Aroma is herbal and slightly oniony/dank with light pine and weed. Malt aroma is light caramel and some cereal grain.
Flavor is also mostly herbaceous and dank with some grassy, weedy notes and a bit of pine resin. Maltiness is more caramel than in the nose. Moderate bitterness.
Feel is medium-bodied with tacky but dry finish.
Not a bad beer but a bit old-fashioned.

A: (Old School Look) Steady carbs going to the top to make a continuing lace and thin layer of head. Orange brown. About standard looking as it gets.
S: Faint grapefruit scent . Floral. Inviting.
F: A bit thin with some of the sting from a grapefruit juice texture, but watery grapefruit. Foamy on the sides of the tongue with a minor bitter wash.
T: The above textures lean to a little on the "odd" side but for an IPA this really is pleasant. It does have the bit of bitter at the front end, and that grapefruit hops but the slight juicy fruit without being sweet and maybe a slight nuttiness at the back end make this a really good stab at the style.
O: I'm glad I picked this up on my annual trip to Louisville. Of course, I also got a sixer of Torpedo which makes this seem like a pale ale, but for fans of grapefruit hops flavor IPAs. this one fits and that it's a Falls City product, when I go back I'll get this again.

On tap at Brixx Pizza in Franklin, TN. Golden color with not much head at all. Aroma is nice blend of hops, very nice. The taste is piney and citrusy with not a lot of bitterness. I really enjoyed this balanced IPA.

Beautiful golden hue. Mild hop smell. Great hop taste, mild citrus, not overwhelming. Slightly syrupy texture with some after taste and after texture.
Overall, an IPA I'd drink regularly.
