Review 8/2016 on bottle 7 weeks old:
Pours a dark side of golden, but clear, with a couple fingers of white head on an aggressive pour. Head maintained quite well and laced the glass with sheets and islands.

Nose isn't very strong, but I get a balanced spiced bread malt note with a bit of citrus bitterness.

Taste starts off a little sweeter than expected, but also with a little bite to it. An orange citrus bitterness balances it out before a more classic grapefruit citrus takes over in the end. A nice full range from malty to bitter, as the end does get decently bitter for an overall seemingly balanced IPA. There is a bit of spice that runs throughout, as well, that seems more from the ingredients than the carbonation (which is soft on this pour).

Definitely a solid, classic, little less balanced than it seems IPA. Seems a little more east coast than west, though the hop profile seems to be more of the latter.
