Bottle. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, malty, fruity, some hops and bready. Taste is moderate bitter and light to moderate sweet. Big backbone for an IPA. More than I expected. Hoppy, but more malty. Still good though, just doesn’t know if it wants to be an IPA or a DIPA.
