3.94/5 rDev -3.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Canned on 6/11/13, poured into a tulip
A- pours clear and golden color with a two-finger foamy/creamy white head that retains long after the pour, leaving some nice lace behind
S- piney and citrus hop aromas with some fresh cut grass, a few floral hop notes mingling in as well. Malt base is slightly bready and sweet, a touch of booze
T- grassy hop notes with notes of tropical fruit up front, piney bitterness mid-palate leads to a sweet malty kick and a semi-dry finish
M- medium body with medium-low carbonation, the everlasting head provides a creamy mouthfeel that leads to a smooth finish, very drinkable even at 7.3%
O- most west coast style ipa's I've tried seem to be a little more citrus dominant, but this one was still well made and very drinkable . It drinks almost as easy as a session IPA.

Deep, golden body with a light haze and an incredible off-white head. Head retention is fantastic, as is lacing. Plenty of carbonation keeps fine sediment spinning violently around the glass.
Nice herbal and pine hop notes with a fantastic, sweet caramel malt to provide some balance. The addition of citrus notes make for a very welcoming aroma.
Bitter bite is right up front and is both brutal and smooth. Confused? Yeah, me too. In my opinion, this one sets the bar for what balance should be in an IPA! Plenty of pine hops character here meets a slightly sweet roasted caramel.
Super smooth medium bodied IPA. Plenty of carbonation. Semi-dry and clean finish.
Fantastic and very easy to approach IPA. Overrated, this is not - grab it.. even if you're not an IPA fan - this might convert you!
