This beer feels misunderstood to me. It's very much in the style of the Vermot/East Coast IPA but tastes pretty drastically different because of the Santa Cruz water. It hash a minerality unlike any IPA I've ever had. Not traditional at all, but since when was that something beer nerds cared about?

750 mL growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very hazy orange body. Small white head. Leggy. Some lacing.

Smell - Super grapefruity. Grapefruit hops. Pale malt. More grapefruit. Hint of sweetness.

Taste - Sweet right up front. Pale malt. Orange citrus hops. Then strong pithy grapefruit. Lingering grapefruit bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Hint of creaminess. Very bitter.

Overall - Very enjoyable. Especially if you're into grapefruit bombs.
