pours a clear amber with a half finger of head that dissipates to a thin cap with traces of lacing. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste of pine and bread with a nice bitterness in the tail. Well balanced.

poured cloudy amber with a foamy head, laces all the way down the glass. Nice piney smell and a smooth mouth feel. Has that bitter taste dry finish I like in a IPA. almost has a DIPA feel and taste. I really liked it and could definitely drink a couple, wish it came 16 oz. Hides the7.2 % well.

A good IPA, but a little sharp tasting. Definitely can't have more than one!

Tasting notes from October 22nd, 2015
Had on-tap@ Quahog Republic in Falmouth, MA

Appearance - Served up in a pint glass, this brew is hazy and a dull shade of orange with a half finger's width of off-white head. Fair retention, resulting in a thin, broken layer of surface suds. The lace is a pattern of broken webs across the sides of the glass.

Smell - Strong citrus aroma with lesser bread and caramel undertones.

Taste - Grapefruit hop bomb. Hints of floral and woody hop character. Malts are subdued, but peaks through mid-taste with a hint of caramel and lightly toasted bread. Super pithy finish that wipes out all other traces of flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with moderate carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall - It's been awhile since I've had a beer attack my tongue with ruthless bitterness like this, and I have a very high lupulin threshold; i.e. this thing is very aggressively hopped. If you're in the mood for a pure hop bomb, this will fit the bill.
