A: Clear golden color with a thin off white head.

S: Lots of citrus hops. Not a ton else, but I guess it really doesn't need a lot more here.

T: The one dimensional thing worked with the smell, but it's not working quite as well with the flavor. A good amount of hops with a really high amount of bitterness and not enough malt to smooth things out. I probably wouldn't do this one again.

A - pale orange with a nice white head and good lacing

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

I can't believe I haven't officially set down my thoughts on this stuff yet. Go figure. It pours a clear golden-amber topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises sharp pine, strong grapefruit, and a kiss of mild honey. I have this sneaking suspicion that some hops have been added to this beer... The taste brings in more of the same, with the grapefruit, complete with peel, stealing the limelight. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, a somewhat simple, yet very tasty and satisfying, IPA. Good times.

Poured a hazy dark golden/ amber Colorado with a 2 finger head. Nice lacing on the glass.

Smells of pine and a little citrus.

Taste starts off with hop bitterness, and like the nose some pine and citrus. Backed up by nice malt sweetness and a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Good mouthfeel and carbonation.

This is a solid, well balanced IPA.

Pours a clear, amber/golden yellow. Very impressive, thick white head that lasts, very nice lacing.
Scent is light pine, citrus rind. Pretty light.
Tastes of again pine, citrus rind (grapefruit more than others), mild malt in the background to provide a little balance.
Refreshing. Overcarbonated. On the verge of bitter but nicely done overall. I do think there are other IPAs, specifically of the west coast types, that are better than this but this is solid.
