Received in trade from barak316, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a crystal clear deep copper color that borders on brown and wears a creamy white head that sticks around for a bit. Smells of citrus and pine, grapefruit and resin mixed with a bit of caramel. Taste is nicely balanced between malt and hop with a nice citrusy old school pale ale kind of feel to it. Medium body with a bit of residual sweetness, moderate level of carbonation and a lick almost sweet mouthfeel. Nice easy drinking pale ale with enough hop to keep it interesting.

Served from a bomber bottle into a snifter.

A - Medium gold to orange color, just a hint of cloudiness. Head is off white. It starts off 1/4" thick but quickly fades to just a ring around the glass.

S - Sharp grapefruit aroma edging toward cat pee (classic Northwestern US hops). However, the hops are muted, definitely not overpowering. It's possible the hop aroma faded with time, but I don't know how old the bottle is, since the label is very basic. A little bit of sweet malt in the background.

T - High hop bitterness, but not extreme. The hop flavors are nice; very fresh tasting. There is some grainy malt at the end of the sip.

M - There is a bit of prickly carbonation. The body is light to medium. No alcohol burn.

D - This is a tasty beer. It has the huge fresh hop taste of an IPA. However, the body is lighter and the bitterness is lower, making this very drinkable and enjoyable. If the hop aroma was a little more forward I'd like it even more.
