Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of citrus, pine and toasted caramel. Nice sweet caramel flavor with piney bitterness and citrus.

grabbed a six pack during my Cleveland trip with the misses. 12oz bottled on 06/02/17

Appearance- hardy pour it's a hazy (very slight transparency) golden/straw color. super frothy off white/cream colored head that leaves decent lacing.

Aroma- biscuit mixed with orange juice. nothing crazy but I dig it.

Taste- like the smell. a slight biscuit malt action mixed with a fruity orange/ grapefruit juice taste. bitterness isn't much but kind of lingers in the background after the sip.

Mouthfeel- medium/ light bodied. good carbonation even with the super frothy head from the pour.

Drinkability- super crushable.

Overall- this brew is pretty good. I was hoping for some pine action with the hop lineup but nope. easily a nice session brew. I don't know if i'll leave the state to pick up this up but when i'm ever back in ohio and this is available i'll gladly drink it.

Traditional optics, nice barm & carbonation. Aroma is very zesty and bright - perhaps a little faint - with some typical citrus hop wafts. Taste is good, unadventurous but good. Just a normal PNW style with grapefruit, citrus etc. Not super bitter.

Bottle dated 3/29:
With just over a month on it, I feel this holds up pretty well. It's a classic grapefruit leaning pithy bitter IPA.

Golden, maybe a shade to the dark side, with a foamy white head that creates a blizzard of lacing.

Nose perhaps shows a little age, with a grassy copper note along with a fresh pine, light spice backbone.

The taste brings the grapefruit on a crisp, crackery malt opening. A little toasted note gets a citrusy (not juicy) dose of grapefruit, orange zest, and pith. The bitterness doesn't grow, but the malt seems to fade just a little quicker.

Light prickly carbonation plays with a very light spice accent in the flavor to produce a tingly, medium or so beer.

Enjoyed this beer for its classic nature and solid construction. Wonder if the nose pops just a little more fresh.
