6 Pack of 12 ounce bottles, purchased in ealry February 2009, consumed shortly thereafter.
Pours a medium copper-amber with a pretty white head that has decent retention and above-average retention. Solid carbonation keeps things rolling.
Aroma is a solid IPA hop-heavy mix, with herbal and piney notes first, then an orange peel citrus right behind. Flavor is strongly hopped but a big malty body keeps it from being too bitter. The hops are juniper and pine resin, but not overly so, as the grapefruit sharp/sweet balance keeps it from being over the top.
A well made, very drinkable IPA.

Poured from a 16 ounce can purchased at the local quick mart.
A: A very nice orange amber with good head and excellent retention.
S: Hoppy, citrus notes. Clean and somewhat floral.
T: Nice hop notes, not too awfully heavy on the citrus. Decent complexity.
M: Just about what I have come to expect from an IPA. Decent bite.
O: This is a solid ale and at 2$ a pint it's also a solid bargain.

a. Golden cooler with 1 finger of foam that lasts at shortly under a finder for the entire beer. The lacing is thick spectacular.
s. Smell is sweet bread, yeast, hops, a bit of citrus.
t. Smooth, rich, not as hoppy as I hoped considering it was an extra IPA. Although the smell had sweet proponents, the beer taste did not reflect this. Very good, but more ale than IPA to me.
m. Carbonation was near perfect.
o. This beer is outstanding at face value, so I gave it a 4.0. That being said the beer did not seem like a true IPA, which was reflected in the Taste score.
