look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip. 16oz can.
A - Poured a very nice crystal clear dark golden hue with a one finger creamy white head that faded to leave a nice light lacing and a thin blanket with a fluffy halo.
S - Aromas of lightly bitter pine, citrus peel (orange, grapefruit), super light malts. This thing is mostly wonderful citrus notes.
T - Taste is note quite as good as the nose. Bit more malts, light caramel and malty sweetness, nice light pine, good citrus (though a touch generic) with some good grapefruit rind.
M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated. Wish it was a bit more as it feels just a little watery.
O - Overall, a solid IPA offering from the west coast. Quite tasty and very easy drinking. Solid.

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.
