Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy, amber body with a short-lived, skimpy white head.

Bottle. This is more like it! I had this right after Jockamo IPA, and there is no comparison. Pours a nice amber color with decent head and lacing. Nose is citrusy hops. Palate is grapefruit mostly with a malty backround. Bitter sticky aftertaste. A very decent IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pour is a semi-cloudy amber with a small light beige head, excellent lacing.
smell is of grapefruit, some caramel, touch of citrus.
taste is crisp, medium body, citrus up front, some caramel and pineapple in the middle, bitter grapefruit hops in the end.
overall a creamy light bitter finish, yet not overpowering and a hint of malt.
