Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is fairly faint, but there is a little bit of grapefruit and some iced tea notes. The flavor is more aggressive. I get some grapefruit and tea, as well as some biscuit malt and a medium amount of bitterness. Medium motuhfeel and medium carbonation.

This combination of hops creates the exact flavor of grapefruit but incredibly bitter. Its definitely interesting but isnt all that pleasant to drink. I love the concept of these hop project beers.

This is bitter orange juice, creative and tasty but that finish is way too bitter. Solid 3.5 here

Bottle. poured to pint. Purchased at Frugal Mcdougals Nashville. Pours a classic ipa appearance. Wonderful pine notes upon first few drinks. First hop project ever so I canít compare precious batches. Quite an initial hop blast to the mouth almost more so than other ipas that I love. This beer is for true ipa drinkers and one of yazoos better beers!!
