Pours a hazy golden amber in color with a finger of long-lasting off white head. Aroma and pine and citrus, more akin to cleaner than a hoppy beer but not wholly unpleasant; I also get some caramel malt in the background. Taste is oddly soapy but has piney hops and caramel malts in the background yet I don't get any sweetness. As I continue to drink I get earthy hops that become me more prominent. Decent mouthfeel light-medium body and low-ish carbonation. This is much more of an old school English IPA. I think I would have enjoyed this quite a bit a few years ago but in today's world of juice bitterness but beer bombs this just doesn't do it for me.

Appearance: apple-cider colored. thin level of foam that dissolved immediately.

Smell: VERY hoppy, with a hint of fruit

Taste: Again, very hoppy. Grapefruit flavor. Bitter, and it lingers.

Mouthfeel: Thick, like the right kind of woman.

Overall: Not a huge fan. I like the flavor, but the bitterness is overpowering and it definitely lingers on the tongue longer than I'd hoped for. It's good, for sure, but its not something I'd put atop my shopping list.
