This was a balanced beer, but not my favorite. However, it is very easily obtained. The only downfall is it is not cheap, a four pack will run you around $16.
Appearance: Really nicely colored beer. Bronze with some head that falls to a very small lacing pattern.
Smell: More sweet malts, not as much hoppy floral aromas as a West Coast style. Not as much in the bouquet as I would prefer.
Taste: More flavor than you would detect from the aroma. Caramel malts present, but some hop bitterness, not as much citrus fruit flavors as I would prefer. I am really developing a palate for those type of IPAs.
Overall: A good beer but I probably wouldn't go with this one again, just due to the price and the fact that there are others that I like more out there for less money. But, I am not disappointed I had a chance to try it, it might have been THE beer. Variety is a good thing.
