On tap. Pours a clear copper with a small white head that has decent retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The aroma is caramel, light pine hops, light grapefruit, and a big of diacetyl. The initial tasty is malty, but not sweet with caramel, very light pine and grapefruit. The finish has a medium bitterness and a bit of diacetyl that lingers. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Not very enjoyable. Not happy enough and the diacetyl was unpleasant.

A - Served a clear copper-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some good lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of big citrus and pine hops with some sweet caramel malt in the background, and a touch of almost spicy hop.

T - Starts off with some pine hops with some good bitterness and some sweet caramel malt in the background. Through the middle, some more grapefruit and citrus hops come through with a bit of light spicy hop and some more bitterness. The finish is a mix of piney and spicy hop with some bitterness and caramel malts.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice big hoppy IPA with a good complex hop profile and a nice level of bitterness throughout.
