Pours golden with a slight copper hue into a tulip glass. A pretty healthy white head rises up and stays for most of the session.
Smell is not overpowering but still evident.... mostly notes of pine and citrus... pleasant.
Taste starts a bit hop forward and bitter, but eases through with more citrus as i progress. Nothing really stands out as far as an overpowering note, but it is pleasant overall, a relatively balanced IPA and very enjoyable.
Mouthfeel is a little creamy and finishes slightly dry. Nothing stringent here, but nothing overly positive either, probably the weakest element of the beer just in that its so nondescript.
Drinkability is pretty high, as its not stringently bitter or overly hoppy. As far as regularly available IPA's go, i'd put it behind 2 Hearted, Stone IPA, and Coronado Islander IPA (and maybe a couple others that aren't popping into my head right now).... overall this is a upper echelon ipa (in terms of year round locally available beers) but there are still a few others i'd put ahead of it... if you are an IPA fan though I would give it a shot.
