Easily drinkable. Yup, thatís grapefruity alright. Has a sweet, malty undertone. Reasonably good. Nice lacing, as if that matters. Solid IPA.

Draft. Aroma is a little sweeter than their Kismet, but still has enough hoppy presence for an IPA. Mostly candid citrus with just enough grapefruit and resin and finished with a nice toffee sweetness. Flavor itís extremely balanced. Grapefruit rind finishes a very toffee-like first impression. Very sticky and full-bodied. But sure Iíd call this a session ipa, but itís a very good beer

650 ml bottle. Pours a translucent amber-copper color with a mid sized off-white head that has very good retention. The aroma is strong with resins, oranges, grapefruit and a touch of toffee. The flavor mirrors the nose, more oranges, grapefruit and resins set in toffee malt base. The palate is full, smooth and seemed a bit heavy--carbonation is lively. Finishes medium in duration with lingering bitter pine resins. Overall: Decent IPA, will drink again.
