A - Pours the expected amber orange with a decent, lingering head and some moderate lacing.
S - A bit mild, but what is there is hoppy. Mostly get herbal and pine notes, with some decent caramel malt.
T - Fairly one-note hoppiness - herbal and pine dominate with little in the way of citrus. Moderately bitter, but lacking the qualities of a high quality IPA.
M - Medium bodied with a bit of oiliness on the tongue. Medium+ carbonation.
D - A good IPA all things considered, but far short of the bar set by others. Nevertheless easy to down, and for the price it delivers.

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.
