I've never said anything about this until now.
Okay, well now I will.
The appearance was a nice golden amber color with a decent one finger white foamy head leading to a decent lacing.
The smell was exceptionally floral and citrusy bittersweet.
The taste took the floral and citrusy aspects to combine more than nicely.
The mouthfeel was sharp but not too overbearing, its an AIPA that lives up to the Northwest style of AIPA.
Overall, so glad to come at this again, as I've had this several times. Ya know, this lives up to its somewhat under-hyped-ness.

A - Deep orange.
S - Juicy fruit
T - Balanced hop and sweet, tropical fruit flavor. Semi-crisp.
M - Medium carbonation and density. Smooth and juicy.
O - World-class, all-around, balanced IPA. A Pacific Northwest favorite.

Sampled from a 22oz bottle purchased at The Beer Shoppe in Haverford, PA.

A - Golden and quite clear with a big white head. Fantastic!

S - Citrusy, floral and fruity. Everything I'd expect from a west coast IPA.

T - Citrusy, floral and fruity once again with a moderate bitterness. Little from the malt but it does provide a nice foundation.

M - Moderate and somewhat creamy consistency with a low carbonation left after the pour.

O - A great beer. Reminds me of my visit years back to the creaky Laurelwood brewpub in Portland.
