Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow with a 1/2 inch head that stays for a little bit. Moderate amount of lacing along the glass -- aroma is hoppy with citrus/grapefruit being the most overwhelming characteristic. Very pleasant. Slightly sour finish, but overall very solid and enjoyable.

A orangey citrus IPA with spice aroma, which is very unusual. It doesn't work 100% but is not altogether objectionable either. So not a great IPA but not bad. Bevmo had a these for half off, at $8 for a 12-pack I filled my fridge with this very decent and drinkable (if a bit unconventional) IPA.

Appearance: Murky gold and orange with decent foam and lacing and lots of carbonation.

Smell: Citrus, pine, citrus, wheat, and citrus.

Taste: Wheat, orange, spice, citrus.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and creamy, with a bitter hop finish.

The Verdict: Good beer. This is a mild blonde brew with plenty of citra hops. Well balanced with a nice citrus flavor. Bonus: I picked it up from BevMo at a great price!
