Found a bottle at Four Firkins in Minneapolis. The best by date states it's good for another two-and-a-half months. Poured right from the bottle into my Lakefront pint glass.

L: Pours a bright golden straw with about an inch of eggshell head that falls after a bit but leaves nice lacing. Very clear, with moderate visible carbonation.

S: Beautiful bouquet on this one: some very assertive grapefruit, stone fruit, and grassy hop notes come through loud and clear. Just a touch of pine and herbal funk, as well. Fresh and inviting.

T: Luscious is a good word to describe this one: very fruit-forward hop profile, with great notes of grapefruit, stone fruit, and a bit of pineapple. The front has some cracker malt, but the fruity hop notes are there immediately, delivering tons of flavor with very little in the way of bitter. There are some bubblegum notes in the middle, as well. The close is strong on the grapefruit hop notes, but it delivers more tartness than bitterness. This one, overall, has much less bitterness than the nose suggested.

F: On the light side of medium-bodied, perfectly carbonated, and clean-finishing. It's got a creamy quality and--again--very little in the way of syrupy stick or bitterness.

O: This is a fantastic IPA--one of the best, if not the best, fruit-forward single IPAs I've had. This one probably won't please those hop heads who really want that bitter linger at the end of their IPAs, but it should suit everyone else just fine. I will definitely return to this one.

Solid IPA but not to the standards of Dogfish head or Lagunitas IPAs
