I had this on draught at a bar. It poured an orange-amber color with one finger of fluffy, snow-white head and lacing. It smells of floral hops, grapefruit, orange peel, malt, and some fragrant spice. The taste is malt forward with grapefruit, sweet orange, and a hoppy, bitter finish. It is more malty than hoppy. This ale is medium-bodied, moderately carbonated, and I didn't really notice the 7% ABV. Overall, this is a typical southern-style, malty IPA. It isn't nearly as good as Wicked Weed's Pernicious IPA.

I really enjoyed this beer. Had the opportunity to have it on draft in Boston and siezed it. A nice break from the NE fruit bombs I have been drinking of late. Caramel color looks like it will be overly malty but there is a strong floral character that tends quite bitter to finish it off. There is also an oily mouthfeel that I actually enjoyed very much. Oily, pithy, some lavender...if you like gin, you'll definitely appreciate this beer.

It isn't bad, but I'd really like to have tasted the blood orange and/or grapefruit that is advertised on the label of the bottle. It's a so so IPA with nothing really all that interesting going on.
