Pours semi-cloudy gold in color with decent head and lacing. Nose is full on hops, citrus, and some pine. Flavor is very good, nice burst of sweet hops with a slight pine bitterness but evened out with the citrus. A very fine IPA, very clean and refreshing.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head. Smells of pine, citrus, hops, and some malt. Tastes of bitter hops, light sweet malt, grapefruit and orange zest, and pine. Medium resinous body with medium carbonation. Overall a very good standard IPA.

Decent head from tap with a golden hue and almost see through look. Nice tropical fruit scent from this brew. I'm loving this beer so far. The flavor is like unsweetened grapefruit with a slight malt base. This has that "close to cat wiz flavor" with the fruity and bitter aspects combining for a deep flavor with the malt. I said close, but it actually holds together well and is quite tasty. Well carbonated. Good beer.
