Slightly cloudy red-gold with rising bubbles. Small head that coats the glass. Smells like a glass of hop pellets. Fruity, piney, dank smelling. Taste is more balanced with the malt than you'd expect from the nose, an excellent tasting IPA. Light-medium body, crisp and not too oily.

This is a bonafide classic. Give it a try.

S-Smell was fruity with a slight bit of malt.
T – Hops taste was quite strong and remain for a while. Slight astringent flavor.
M – Mouth feel is good and a little bit on the thin side.

App- Pours a cloudy dark gold color with a 1 inch head. Significant lacing.

Smell- Hops overwhelm the aroma, particularly citrus and a little bit of sweetness comes in as well.

Taste- Definate hop character, but also on the end a bit of earthiness as well. Perhaps I should have consumed this earlier.
A small amount of grassy hops come in during the aftertaste.

MF- Crisp, with a balanced feel to it.

Overall- Giving this the benefit of the doubt, I've held on to this bottle for a few months when I should have probably enjoyed it sooner.
