Full bodied and smooth. A light hoppy citrus aroma which belies the big pink grapefruit flavor. Malt balances the hops perfectly, leaving a nice, lingering aftertaste. There's a hint of alcohol, but not so much that it's overpowering. A great example of what an IPA can be.

Picked up a 12 pack for 18.99, had never seen this beer before. Aroma of dank hops, follows through in the taste as well. There's a dankness/heaviness to this brew that I just don't care for. It's certainly potable but after one I gotta move on to something else. Two beers into it and I don't think I'll be buying it again, it just doesn't grab me. The hype about the beer is more interesting than the beer itself.

on tap from my kegerator
poured into nonic pub glass

A - slightly-cloudy body of golden yellow under several fingers of white foam; retains the head well and laces the glass beautifully

S - not much on the nose...grain with a touch of citrus and pine

T - clean and bright; citrus (lemon and pink grapefruit) and pine

M - smooth full body, well-carbonated

O - a very nice IPA...good enough to order by the keg

Nice, hoppy, citrus hints. Hazy orange hue, great kick! Great citrus/earthy flavor, full bodied. Really enjoyed this beer! :)

Pours a slightly hazy orange gold. Aroma is a little light. Was expecting more from a west coast. Taste has the bright hop flavor i was expecting. Nice citrus notes - very clean. Feel is a little smooth with a moderate bitterness and a slight alcohol burn. Not a bad beer at all.
