Bottle into tulip
A: Amber red color. White head. Nice lacing.
S: Malt, cascade hops, citra, simcoe. Pretty balanced smell.
T: Slight graininess. Citrus and piney hops. Bitter finish. Its a good example of a west coast IPA.
M: medium mouth feel. Not thick and coying and not thine and watery.
O: A great standard west coast IPA. Not as complex as some but very drinkable. Expresses the best of Sierra Nevada and CA IPA styles. Not that abrasive on the bitterness which is a plus

4.29/5 rDev +3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Rich cooper color, clear. A creamy beige two finger head when poured; dies down relatively fast leaving an thin uneven coating of foam on the surface of the beer and lots of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell: Slightly sweet and citrusy. Mild aroma of malt. Smooth hops. An extremely slight pine scent. Nice and enticing.
Taste: Citrus (grapefruit. lemon) without being acidic. Delicious mild hoppy flavor for the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light body. Lots of mild carbonation. Ever so slight dry finish.
Overall: An excellent IPA. I would gladly drink this again. The perfect amount of hops with a delicious flavor. Refreshing.
Serving type: can
