3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rather hazy, light gold, with big, foamy head. Citrus aroma. Flavor has a strong citrusy note (very grapefruitlike), with lots of pine-hop bitterness to boot. Very resiny and bitter finish (almost too bitter for my tastes). Not a bad IPA.
