Clear copper-colored beer with a finger's worth of off-white head. Retention seems all right; the lacing is quite good.
Smells have citrus hop notes; grapefruit and pineapple come to mind.
The taste is balanced with the high bitterness being kept a bit in check by some malt character. Flavors are of tropical fruits on the acidic/bitter spectrum.
Feel is crisp with a medium amount of body. The beer is finished with mainly hop tastes such as grapefruit and pine, with a bit of astringency as a negative.
Very nice IPA here
Thanks to Craig for the beer!

Little if any aroma. Candy red appearance -- too much so. Very nice flavoring. They have pleasantly resisted over hopping. Very nice on the palate. Smooth and creamy
[I am copying these notes over from RateBeer ... it does not require as long of review. I tasted this some time ago so I can't add anything.]

Pours a clear, gold/copper color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of floral hops, citrus, hint of grass, hint of earthy malt, and sweet malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level and average bitterness. Tastes of hops, sweet malt, floral notes, hint of earthy malt, and hint of hop oils. Overall, good appearance and feel, but average aroma and body.
