Tasted from a bomber bottle.

A - 4.5 - Medium golden color; perfectly clear. Head piles high with a fluffy off-white appearance. It leaves a thick sheet over the top and chunky lacing on the glass. A fine looking beer.

S - 4.25 - Strong aroma of citrus-like and spicy hops, accompanied by a lighter note of biscuity malt. Clean and fresh first impression. The hops are spicy and herbal overall, not overly piney or catty.

T - 4.25 - Flavors are balanced between light, bready malt and sharp, spicy hops flavors. There's a light yeast note in the background. Dry, crisp finish. Exceptionally clean and slightly understated for a West Coast IPA.

M - 4.25 - Medium body. Smooth, creamy carbonation. Moderate hops bitterness lingers in the crisp aftertaste. Light alcohol presence.

O - 4.5 - This is a crisp, clean IPA that is more quaffable than it's ABV would suggest. The hops are the primary characteristic, but they are clean and herbal/spicy, making it more balanced and less overtly "C"-hopped than many West Coast IPAs. Very enjoyable.
