Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a nice layer and leaves some light lacing.

S: Piney, floral, citrus pith, crackery malt, and a touch of caramel sweetness.

T: Pine, dank herbal notes, citrus, lemon and grapefruit, floral, light fruity notes, crackery malt, and caramel sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Haven't had this one in years. Totally different experience now that my palate has adjusted to this level of bitterness. Still a classic, but not my favorite.

The appearance had a hazy light golden yellow body that gives a one finger white foamy head, the head dies after a minute and a half and there’s a fair amount of thick lacing clinging to the sides of the glass. The smell had grapefruit flavored hops, light malts. The taste had the grapefruit come back to add a piney punch assaulting my taste buds, no aftertaste, dry finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium, sessionable. Carbonation seems to be smoother than most AIPA’s, but still good, not under-carbonated just good. Overall, this is a pretty good AIPA that I would come back to.
