Poured from can into HF snifter. Pours hazy darker orange, almost copper. Half finger head, great retention. I've always liked the smell of this beer, very citrusy, with a hint of bitterness. Taste follows the same. This can is about a month old, and it has fallen off a bit. The citrus doesn't have the same bite that it does fresh. It angers me a but when IPAs fall off that quickly, but this is still s great IPA.

This was my first introduction to IPAs, found it available on tap at The Living Room Restaurant in Boynton Beach, FL a few years ago. Prior to that I was a pretty undiscriminating beer drinker, choosing anything from Bud Light to Heineken to Sam Adams. It was a revelation to find a new type of beer with a really great taste. The thickness and smoothness of this beer combined with the tingling bitterness made an instant impression on me. Now I've taken every opportunity to try different beer varieties and IPAs remain my favorite, with Jai Alai being one of my top five or so.

on tap at Mekong into a snifter.
dark copper, mild head. smell is big on hops but also sweet fruity malts. taste starts out a hoppy and ends with a nice bitterness. the flavor profile is excellent. more on the sweeter side for IPAs, but not as sweet as say sculpin. easy to drink, higher side of medium bodied with mild carbonation. the glass goes down quick.
overall a world class IPA. loved it.
