look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
A-clear deep amber with a lingering white head
S- not much aroma but a bit of pine.
T- somehow the taste brings it despite the dialed back aroma. Nice balance of pine hops and malt.
M- nice with just a hint of carbonation
O- a solid above average IPA
Also delicious from the bottle or the can. An all-around winner no matter how you can get it.
Serving type: on-tap

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.

12 oz from a $10 12 poured into a tulip glass. Born on 6/9/14
A - Ruby red with orange highlights, one finger head that recedes to thick lace ring.
S - Floral, grapefruit/citrus, biscuit
T - More of the same. Very flowery with moderate citrus, and a dry, bitter finish.
M - Perfect level of carbonation. The overall feel is a tad thin, but keeps it refreshing to balance the dry finish.
O - I had this a few months ago out of mix pack and was mildly dissapointed ( the 12 pack was 4-5 months and apparently was stored upside down). This was more in line with what I remembered. A good go to IPA that is a great value (esp at 10 fer 12)

This is one of my favorite "everyday" beers. Nice and hoppy without being overly bitter, so you can keep on drinking. Good head for the style of beer. Often find on sale at Safeway with my club-card, so I'm like- "Okay, twist my arm". Get a little bit of the pine you would want from an extra IPA. Great with chips and salsa. (If you like spicy salsa).
