look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Gave the draught version a 4.55. This was from a fresh bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a beautiful light copper, clear with a one finger white head. Foam fizzles away immediately but leaves a great lacing.

S: Strong. Primarily hop aromas - a grassy combination of floral and citrus.

T: Tastes like it smells, with a very subtle malt backbone. Perhaps not quite up to par with the on tap version, but excellent for a bottled beer. Bitterness lingers, as does the alcohol.

M: A tad overcarbonated for my taste, and thus a bit thinner than I might like.

O: A great beer; one of my favorite IPAs. In comparing to draught from notes, this one holds its own but is considerably better on tap.
