Thanks to ChadMc3 for this one. Poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a hazy orange-gold color with about 1/2 inch of off-white head that had good retention and better than moderate lacing.

A blast of pine hops hit the nose first, with solid citrus hops right behind them. There was a low, but noticeable, malt profile. On the tongue, the pine was smooth in the front, mixed with the citrus in the middle and had a sharp citrus bite at the back of the palate., The low malt didn't offer much of a counter point, and the bitterness lingered at the back of the mouth.

The body was a bit fuller than typical for the style, but wasn't heavy at all. Drinkability was very good, especially if you're a fan of bitter IPAs. Overall, a pretty good brew, one that would be in my regular rotation if it were local to me. A must try if you see it.

This is truly the best beer I've ever had...Had it uber fresh....14 hours (or so I was told). The first thing that hit me was the grapefruit aroma explosion. The most incredible aromatic beer ever. Mouth feel was slick & smooth buit not overly syrupy. My only complaint is that my wife liked it too....Now I need to double down. If you ever have a chance to score some of this, do it without hesitation.
