1/9...pours bright clear copper, head of white foam. Floral, meadow aroma. More malty than anything. Lemon citrus open, rind like bitter, subdued grapefruits. Bitter begins to take a front seat later in. Tasty.

Very good, albeit a bit uninspired, standard IPA. All of this brewer's IPAs are a bit flat with a not entirely pleasing aftertaste. Again, this may be due to the age of the variety 12 pack I picked up (about3-4 months old). Overall.... Solid.
