Poured from 16oz tall can into a pint glass.
Appearance: medium golden hue with a moderate murk and a multitude of tiny floaties. Head is a finger of frothy ecru foam which looks rather nice. Attractive!
Smell: moderately sweet malt with a nice, fruity hop character with some light resiny notes as well. I'm reminded of pear and tangerine, and I find it quite enticing.
Taste: malty but not too sweet; the hops come out right up front and are much more herbal and earthy than the aroma would suggest. The bitterness is pretty raspy, as well; kind of gives it a little bit of a homebrew character. Overall, though, not bad.
Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a big carbonation. It's overly fluffy without being truly creamy; still, I like it well enough.
Overall: quite a decent and drinkable IPA in my book. I could see myself downing a few of these pretty easily.

16oz : tulip
Pours a hazy, golden-orange with a foamy, slightly off white head.
Fruity citric, grapefruit upfront, with a slightly piney, resiny finish in the nose. Bitter finish, but not overwhelming. Pale malt backbone.
Medium+, foamy body.
A big, tasty, hoppy IPA. Fairly standard, enjoyable West Coast IPA character overall. Some beers I find tasty, but would not want more than 12oz of, but I am looking forward to each tallboy in this 4-pack.

Pours a handsome amber color with just a hint of haze and a big white foam. Lots of lacing in the glass. Quite a nice sudsy mouthfeel, but it kind of thin and oily. Pleasant fruity aroma. There is a tang of biscuity malt, but it's mostly just really hoppy. Grapefruit pith and peel. A hint of lemon. Rather acidic on the tongue.
Quite bitter after you sip for awhile, though it's in the range of many California bitter bombs. The thin body and dry finish seem to accentuate the bitter hops. From the 16 oz can purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

Served from the can into a nonic glass.
A- Poured a hazy dark orange color with big fluffy white head that left dense webbed lacing.
S- Big peach, tropical notes, citrus, and lemon. Lots of sweet fruity notes and some fragrant floral notes. Smells really nice, but not a very strong aroma.
T- very assertive bitterness up front, big sweet peach and apricot, some lemony and citrusy notes, and light floral notes.
M- Very dry, crisp, prickly carbonation, pretty smooth, and almost creamy on the finish.
O- A surprisingly bitter IPA with lots of big tropical and citrus flavors. I would have enjoyed it a little more if the bitterness was dialed down some, but the hop flavors are big and the more I drank it the better it got.
