Bottle picked up at the brewery in mid November. Pours a hazy golden amber with minimal, large-bubbled head - not the most attractive pint. Brilliant, hop-forward aroma of pine and citrus. Also an excellent taste that spans a wide variety of flavours, from the sweet caramelized malts to a whole "west coast" hop profile : tropical fruits and citrus. A bitter finish that lingers for an impressive length of time, with some fruit notes in the background.

Definitely a beer I'd recommend to any "hop head" and one I'd personally buy again.

thanks to pelican5 for this one!

a: murky cloudy orange body. two fingers of off white foam that floats in the middle of the glass like a giant iceberg. plenty of spotty lacing is left behind.

s: huge tropical fruits like pineapple, mango and grapefruit.

t: sweet tropical fruits with a well balanced malt body to level things out.

m: medium body, good carbonation. not overly sticky sweet or all that oily like a lot of ipa's are. not much dryness or bitterness on the finish either.

o: very drinkable, smelled great, glad i got to knock this one off of my wants!

The color when poured was a medium amber with a little foam and some lace on the side of the glass. The smell of bitter hops and pine trees had a mild aroma to the nose. The taste had a mild hoppy flavor with a hint of fruit and spices. Not really bitter or over powering hop's for an IPA. Would buy it again.

22 oz dated 9/18/12 served in a imperial pint glass.

A- Light golden color with a touch of haze. Big huge creamy white head that follows the beer all the way to the bottom.

S- big pineapple and grapefruit. Nice round grass tones as well.

T- big ripe pineapple and grass over tones. Light bitter finish.

M-light body with strong carbonation. Beer is well rounded along the pallet with a smooth refreshing quick bitter finish

O- What a west coast ipa should stand up to be. Great refreshing bright flavors.
