A: Pours a hazy amber with a half inch pillow of dense white foam. The head dissipates to a thin film in a few minutes, leaving good lacing.

S: Sweet citrus, especially orange and grapefruit. Smells like a west coast IPA.

T: Sweet to start moving quickly into hops through the mid palate and finish, though the sweetness remains and provides some balance. Relatively strong citrus notes throughout, especially grapefruit on the finish. Pretty nice.

M: Medium to full body, medium carbonation.

Overall, a solid IPA and a good option in canned 6-pack form. I'll probably buy this again.

Not your average Portland Safeway pick. Bright yellow-orange hue. Solid carb. Heady front of grass and resin. Biscuit malt, honey viscosity mouthfeel. Bitterness grows in mid taste, and builds with the flavor profile - very balanced. Piney overtones remain with some booze waft.
