Brassy in color with a bubbly tan froth.

Big grapefruit, other fruit peel and some herb aroma-wise.

Tastes of more grapefruit and orange zest (fruit>bitterness) with piney hops opening up toward the finish.

Light to medium in body with little alcohol noticed.

Thoroughly enjoying all the Epic beers I can get my hands on while road-tripping Utah. Also realizing how truly desolate a beer wasteland the state would be without its local brews.

Tried it from a Nitro pushed tap tonight for the first time. Hazy, from the nitro probably, not much of a nose, but a good little IPA. Not too much of anything, felt like I was drinking a hoppy Bodington's pub ale.
I would definitely recommend it if you do not like grapefruit tasting IPAs. Great mouth feel, creamy, and I couldn't taste the 8.8% ABV
