Pours an amazingly clear golden amber with a nice fizzy head and lacing. Aroma is awesome, full of pine resin and some citrus. The resin of the hops is some of the most amazing aromas I have had from any IPA. The taste hits hard with bitter hops, grapefruit rind and yet is still extremely balanced. As the drinking proceeds, the hop bitterness and grapefruit continue strongly interchanging turns with the fresh piney, woody resin. Awesome. Mouthfeel is good, nice carbonation and mouthfeel. Definitely not a session beer but one that I want to revisit over and over again !!!
