Lovely little slut of a beer. It reminds me of grapefruit juice at my grandmother's house as a child.
Light amber color with a sticky sweet urinal cake type foam.
Strong citrus smell.
Strong bitter hops bite with a sweet grapefruit/citrus rind taste. Easily drinkable despite it's strong tastes.
Don't leave a dirty glass around unless you love fruit flies.
(And you'll probably think those are some sexy ass flies at 7 .5% alcohol and feel like they raped you in the morning if you kill a sixer)
This is probably the best floral citrus ipa ive ever had.

A-pours a crystal clear dirty straw color. Two beautiful fingers of pure white, bubbly head. Great lacing all the way down.

S-super citrusy on the nose. So good. This smells almost like a pina colada. A lot of pineapple(obviously), some pine in there. Great on the nose.

T-Great taste. Huge citrus with pinpple and grapefruit at the beginning. Levels out with a great sweet malty body and ends with a subtle but notice hop bite. It has three very distinct levels as it rolls across palate.

M-light body. Very drinkable. Makes you want more and more. Low carbonation that is spot on.

O-very much a fan of thus IPA. Been a while since I've had a new, kickass IPA. This is outside the box, not a hop bomb. Love this.

Bottle in trade. This one has about 2 months of age. Pours a beautiful clear golden color with a creamy white nearly one finger head. Bright hop aromas with citrus, lemon, grapefruit, definite sweet caramel malt backbone to the smell and the aroma has held up well for the 2 month age. Flavor is sweet malts, straw, grapefruit, honey, grass. Mouthfeel is very slick, medium, with medium carbonation. As with other Troegs beers I have had, this has a slightly syrupy feel to it. Overall a very nice IPA that I would drink again.
