12oz bottle, best by 6/15/14. Reviewed live from an IPA glass.

A - Deep yellow, light white pillow, excellent lacing.

S - Light melon fruit and pine.

T - Nice balanced pine and fruit tones. Bitter enough, but not too astringent.

M - Crisp, light, drinkable. Very refreshing IPA.

O - An archetype of the West Coast style. What more is there to say?

A - This beer pours up golden copper, nearly clear. White head, dense bubbles that pillow out to a thin layer, with extravagant lacing. A beautiful pour indeed.

S - Bright citrus notes, heavier toward lemon and orange, with pine resin, and a slight pepper and grass close.

T - Following the nose, with big lemon and orange zest, leading into citrus flesh as the sweetness of the malts links up. The pine and resin comes out in the middle, and it runs into the close, where the bitterness swells and holds for a while after the swallow. Along with the bitter, there are hints of pepper spiciness and sour lemon.

M - Light, but with a chewy back-end and considerable building dryness. This is not a gentle IPA - it gets in there to do some damage.

O - This is one I've been meaning to try, but it wasn't until the 4-bottle box, when I got a couple along with all the other options (all of which I've bought separately), that I finally tried one. The beer is very good rendition of the style, and well worth the price.
