Poured into a Mother Earth tulip glass.

Bought this beer on a whim from our local wine shop, and I wasn't looking for anything to heavy. Here you have it, a west coast IPA that doesn't live up to its genre. When poured into the glass, it gives off a nice honey amber color with an off-white three finger head that goes away quickly, but leaves a decent amount of lacing.

The aroma was undoubtedly the best part of this beer. You get a lot of fruit when put to the nose, including orange zest, pears, pineapple, some biscuit malt aromas, and fresh cut grass. It seems very inviting, but the taste just doesn't live up to it. You get a kick of bitterness up front, and you think it immediately disappears... but it lingers around in the back of your tongue for a while. You can definitely taste the citrus hops, a little bit of pine, and some biscuit malts.

All in all, this beer doesn't compare to any of the other west coast IPA's I've had, and honestly is a pretty bland IPA. It entices you with its fruit aromas and goes down smoothly (although pretty carbonated), but leaves you wanting to drink something else in the end.

This is a tasty IPA from Mission Brewery. The aroma is citrus hops when cracked open and the smell is sustained when poured into the glass.

The flavor of the beer is lightly hop tainted smooth beer. It has a balanced taste with no punishing heavy alcohol or malt taste that seems to hurt some other IPAs. Smooth, drinkable, friendly and a great after-taste.

I poured it from a 22 to a pint glass for reasoned appreciation. Frothy head and a sustained lemon hop flavor. An excellent pairing with spicy vegetarian food.

Color- hazy apricot.

Aroma- sweet nectarine, like a fruity butterscotch.

Taste- Starts buttery and smooth, orange and nectarine notes, finishing mild with a lingering balanced tartness.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted December 2012.
