12 oz bottle poured into Sam Adams glass.

Appearance: Pours clear and golden in color with a small but fluffy white head.

Smell: Pine and citrus hop aromas dominate the nose.

Taste: First taste is all citrusy hops. As the beer settles some malt backs up the bitterness and finishes with a sharp hop bite.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: Drinkable and not overbearing. This is probably the standard for an American IPA

Green 12 ounce bottle. The label is silkscreened (a feature I appreciate very much). Served in a pint shaker glass.

Appearance-Almost orange in color. Fine head. Nice lacing on the side of the glass. A good looking beer.

Smell-Hoppy (go figure).

Taste-Hops (no surprise here). Bitter. Sour. Orange. Spicy? Mint?

Mouth-Aggressive.

Overall-This beer is really hoppy. This is definitely a quality product. Concerning the hops, however, maybe this beer has a little bit too much of a good thing.

A very nice light amber color when it hit the glass. Had a decent white head that stuck around for a little bit. Fruity hoppiness in the nose. A solid malt backbone to support the hoppiness of the beer. Perfectly carbonated with a medium body and a clean finish. A very smooth brew. If I wasn't so broke, I'd buy a case right now.
