A - This shit looks like a beer commercial. I mean it. Poured a bottle and a half into my Short's imperial pint, and the 2 finger froth emanates from the top of the glass. A light amber/deep orange brew that has copious amounts of bubbles rising through the clear body. Ridiculous lacing. Fucking ACE.
S - A subdued American IPA. The hops are nice and herbal up front, and a little more citric on the backend. The malt plays a nice role in the smell, adding a light, sweet background for the hops to play around on. Not the usual SN "C" profile, but definite west coast vibes.
T - Perhaps I expected a little more out of this, but to me it's good, not great. Mostly herbal, piney hops, with a slightly bitter, dry backend.
M - Quite light with a crisp carbonation.
D - The price is right and the beer ain't bad. Easy drinking IPA, especially with the mouthfeel.
Notes: Not my fave IPA of all time, but not a slouch by any stretch. I would definitely pick this up again.
