I'm not a big IPA guy, but this is the epitome of the style. Great pour, retention, and lacing. Huge pine-scented nose. Light malt for the base, that balances the moderate hop bill well. Hops do not overpower, but provide a solid kick. Great weight for sessioning. Could throw a few back and feel great, while still getting the great flavors.

Medium body, very strong tasting for a single IPA. However, it is very smooth once your palate gets used to the hops they use in the beer itself. For first timers, this is one that I highly recommend trying, and its priced just right. You can pretty much find this anywhere (depending on where you are located). Always recommend trying it in the 22oz bottles before buying 6 packs.

12oz. bottle poured into a tumbler glass.

A- a clear straw/orange/amber, with a pillowy white head, which sticks around and sticks all over the glass.

S- grapefruit and herbal/earthy/piney hops, a fruity yeastyness of sorts, and a bit of a caramel malt note.

T- Very bitter on the palette, hits hard up front with the herbal/piney hops, which give way to a bit of the caramel malt sweetness, but it's quickly overridden by the big piney/grapefruit hoppy end. Bitterness lingers awhile after the sip, perhaps a bit too long.

M- Excellent. Medium bodied, but smooth and almost syrup like. Quite dry on the finish for a single IPA.

O- a reference standard for the West Coast IPA. I could enjoy it anytime, anywhere, and it really hits home when I want a very bitter IPA (but don't feel like blowing my head off with Green Flash W.C. IPA)
