A - Clear, deep golden amber with a great lingering head and some intricate lacing.
S - Nice strong citrus - lots of grapefruit and pine. Just a hint of yeast and grainy malt.
T - First off, let me say this is one of the better IPAs I can recall having out of a bottle. Not sure of how fresh this was overall, but I did drink it the day after I bought it. Whatever it's age, it was excellent. A complex mix of hoppy goodness, ranging from grapefruit to lemon zest to a balanced earthy herbalness in the bitter aftertaste. It is quite bitter, but in a great way that avoids any of the occasional unpleasantness from lesser brews. Color me impressed.
M - Fairly thick and resiny on the tongue - if it wasn't for the lower ABV, I would have assumed this was a DIPA based on the texture. Moderate+ carbonation.
D - Could drink this all day, and would love to try it on tap. Will look for it.

L: Crystal clear gold with tinges of amber a thin head on top. Decent lacing and very little carbonation activity.
A: Floral hop aroma of grapefruit rind, peach and some pine with a clean, nutty maltiness backing it. Classic Amercian IPA.
T: A smooth bitterness upfront, moves into hop flavors of grapefruit and peach with some spicy and piney earthiness. The malt brings in fantastic balance to the hop flavors, helping give a backbone to the beer and really increase the drinkability. A medium body provides a great base for the flavors and the hops and slightly bisciuty malt flavors linger on with a dry finish.
Overall, a top-tier Northwest IPA. The flavors are bold and perfectly balanced, and the beer is unbelievably drinkable. This is a must try.
