12oz, 6.5%. I had seen this in the past and not realized that it was a North Coast offering. Poured a brilliant golden-orange color with a sizable frothy white head that held good retention and left a sticky lacing down the side of the glass. Herbal and floral hops fill the nose with some faint citric and toasted grain aromas. Tastes are very earthy and herbal - bitter hops from the start all the way to the finish providing an oily and medium bodied mouth-feel. Slight malty sweetness holds off some of the bitterness, but it still finishes dry and bitter leaving a tingle on the tongue on the way down. Not much complexity, and I am not a fan of the more herbal noted IPA's, but this one was decent.
