Long time drinking this brew, figured I should write a review. 12 oz bottle poured into a Mikasa wide-based tulip. Not sure of the freshness. Off the shelf for $8.99/6pack

Appearance: An opaque amber/orange with 1 finger of off-white head, excellent lacing, modest retention.

Smell: I don't know if there's a more classic hop profile than SNPA's. This smells just like SNPA does. Extra grassy and piney, not much citrus. Somewhat more subdued than I recall.

Taste: Hops taste are forward but far from overwhelming with more grassy notes. Not too malty. Bitterness on the finish is nice. Well-balanced, but not exceptional tasting.

Mouthfeel: Exactly what you want out of an IPA: Crisp, smooth, and dry. Moderately carbonated.

Overall: I may have had this one a little less than optimally fresh, but still enjoyed it. This is a solid IPA that I turn to time and time again for the value, availability, and reliability. Nothing mind-blowing, but gets a lot of points for balance and drinkability. If this is your go-to IPA, you've made a good choice.
