Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Clear gold with a nice two finger off white fluffy head, big blanket of lacing.
S - Typical pine, grapefruit, orange juice, cracker malt, a little sweet grain.
T - Very sweet and grainy, almost in the adjunct way. Middle to end you get a little grassy and pine bitterness, some grapefruit.
M - Medium body, well carbonated.
O - Its just ok, I'm kinda shocked at some of the other reviews this has gotten, its nothing stellar at all, very generic.

The color pretty much epitomizes amber, and it's completely clear though there is a density in the heaviest part of the body. The head is eggshell white, tight, and 3/4 finger at its peak. Lacing includes moderately thick rings where it rest with dense spotting between.
The aroma really showcases Citra hops with a good balance of caramel malts that never let the hops lose focus. Showcased are lots of hop oils with citrus and tropical fruit characters as well as something slightly green.
Citra's the main event in the flavor as well, though it gets slightly pithier than that, fades out in the middle while caramel and a touch of brine show, then comes back into the finish.
The feel is good, a medium body supporting with a little slickness that's cut through by the hop acidity. It has a strong crispness that sustains itself without biting too hard, allowing for good smoothness as well.

Another buy from my Ohio beer run. Loved the label and packaging, so I picked it up. This one pours a glowing orange copper hue with a thick and lasting white foam head. The lacing is minimal and suggests a thinner ale. The nose is bright and delicious with citrus, pine, and grassy hops. There is a little malt note but mostly just beautiful fresh hops. The sip is clean, medium bodied and refreshing with just enough coating to make a hop head like me happy. The taste is all hops just like the nose suggests but unfortunately doesn't seem as fresh as the aroma. This is a damn good west coast style ipa that I will definitely drink again. Not the greatest but very enjoyable.
