On draft at Draught 55, NYC.

Poured a murky bronze hue with a two finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a soft herbal hop and light caramel.

The taste offered an initially subdued herbal hop with a soft doughy caramel. However, the hops finished the experience off with a prickly herbal hop.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a subdued carbonation.

Overall a pretty good well balanced IPA.

Huge amounts of grapefruit in the aroma and taste, incredible piney hop finish. My only knock against my pour of this was the watery body that didn't carry the great bitter notes as well as it should. Loved the flavors, but could have been carried more.

nice sappy pine, strong-ish hops , a little too syrupy on the mouth feel.
