Pours a clear golden orange with a white head. Strong grapefruit, tangerine, and pineapple hop aromas. A very citric quality to it, lots of resinous pine, and some floral notes to it as well. Mild cracker malt in the background. Intense grapefruit zest and fruit favors. Very nice citric notes, some pine bitterness, and a light floral quality. Lemon zest as the beer warms, a bit of cracker malt, and a light sweetness. Pretty nice IPA.
