Draft. Pours a pale yellow with a finger or two of fluffy white head. Cloudy. Smells of citrus hops and grapefruit . Tastes like a traditional ipa. Little bitter but not bite your face off pine tree bitter. Just right. Could drink a lot of this on a hot summer day. Definitely taste slightly sour fruit that's competing with the citrus hops. Guessing grapefruit. Finishes clean. Solid effort. Highly recommend.

A-light amber color with a nice off-white head and decent lacing

S-citrus, tropical fruit, pine, bready malt, very fragrant

T-grapefruit, tropical fruit, bread dough, pine, slight herbal, nice moderate bitter finish

F-medium body with moderate carbonation, crisp and smooth

O-an excellent IPA, love the full Citra flavor and great balance
