Enjoyed in a pint glass

A- pours a nice golden color with about 2" of a nice creamish head that when resides leaves a very nice lacing behind.

S- scent is of fresh piney hops with some citrus aroma as well, possibly orange and grapefruit

T-starts off with intense piney hops. Also shows a strong taste of citrus, both orange and grapefruit. Finally finishes with a fairly sweet malty flavor while still remaining bitter from hops

M- caronaton is not too much or too little, takes mouth for a ride, hoppy, sweet malts, and finishes bitter from hops.

Overall, fairly hoppy, piney and citrus hops mixed with the gentle sweet malts. I like this one.

A- Pours a translucent light gold with a two finger head that dissipates into a thin cap. Leaves some nice lines of lacing behind

S- Herbal and piney hops, grapefruit, orange zest and a hint of caramel malt

T- Herbal and dank hops with pine and grass followed by citrus hops with notes of pink grapefruit, orange zest and a caramel malt finish.

M- Medium carbonation and body. Finishes dry and bitter.

O- A little too bitter for my liking, but still a nice ipa that is very herbal and pine forward.

Dad bought a bottle of this for Christmas, nice choice.

Pours a bit more yellow/straw than typical Ipa. Leaves some dec lacing with a singificant head.

Smell: pretty hop forward, sweet citrus,

T: Great Hop flavor, not overly bitter, but nothing to scoff at. Quite sessionable. Very citrus, grapefruit, orange, based. The standard west coast taste profile.

M: creamy, just enough carbonation, somewhat rich but quite easy to drink.

O: One of the best IPAs around, can't really go wrong with this. Excellent abstraction of hop flavors.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 22 oz. bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden with a two-finger white head, generous amounts of lacing left on the glass.

Smell: Nothing much going on, citrusy hops is about all I smell.

Taste: Citrus hop-forward with barley, a fair amount of bitterness. It's good.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly light bodied with a good amount of carbonation; crisp and refreshing.

Overall: A good IPA that I would no doubt have again; it's refreshing and an easy, delicious drinker.
