Clear golden yellow like color.
Little to no aroma that I could detect.
Taste was extremely balanced, a little hoppy/citrusy with a tad bit of bitterness.
Little bit of carbonation.
Overall, an extremely smooth finish, an excellent IPA that I would definitely buy again.

I remember that when I first had this, probably 6 or 8 years ago, I thought it was absolutely great. Today I had two in a row. OK, its good, but it wasn't all that drinkable. Nice flavors up front, but a little bitter-harsh on the finish. Very similar to a hundred other IPAs. I think many of those newer IPAs probably copied this. Maybe I'm just burned out on all the IPA nonsense.
