Hadn't had this in a long time, glad I went back to the well and it still delivered.

A: Hazy, light amber. Decent head and retention

S: Citrusy pine

T: Spicy citrus and pine

M: Perfect for an IPA, with good carbonation

O: Tried, proven and still reliable.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into an Innis & Gunn flute.

a: Clear amber topped with a two finger thick white head which dissipated to a thick foam surface film and heavy lacing.

s: Moderate pine, leaning to intense.

t: A piney hop assault on the tongue suggestive of an IIPA. Lingering bitter finish.

m: Moderate, the hop bitterness detracts.

o: A powerful and unpleasantly bitter IPA, typical of West Coast IPAs, indeed reminiscent of Green Flash and Lagunitas, although the latter is a bit less hoppy and far more tasty.

Definitely one hopheads will enjoy. Not for me though, the finish is too persistently bitter, although I enjoyed it more near the end. Yet I just had an SN Hoptimum last night and loved it. And Uinta's Hop Notch the night before that, and liked it a lot.

Oddly, I loved Ruination, which is even more hoppy than this. Perhaps my taste buds do not appreciate certain hops. I'll take the slightly more pricey IPAs from another California company, Firestone Walker, over this any day. And for not a lot more than half the price, SN Torpedo will suffice to satisfy my hop cravings.
