The initial aroma is a clean mix of grapefruit and resiny hops with a little biscuit malt character peeking through. There is more hop flavor than the nose would suggest, including pine, spice and a little tropical fruit character. It ends with a dry, very firm bitterness that lingers a long time in the finish. The malt has a touch of caramel flavor, but is only a springboard to showcase the decidedly American hops. The overall impression is that of a very thirst-quenching daily IPA which accommodates having more than one. The brewer leaves the traditional West Coast-inspired parting shot of bitterness to encourage the next sip.The initial aroma is a clean mix of grapefruit and resiny hops with a little biscuit malt character peeking through.
