Picked up a 6-pack at QFC - bottle dated July 20th of this year. Poured into a snifter.
A> Cloudy orange-blonde appearance... uhh .. where is the head? Produced about 1/4 finger of foam when ruffed up a little bit... dissapears quickly and leaves little lacing... definetely not very impressive
S> Okay, now this isn't bad - sweet malt, citrusy hops with a faint green apple. The aroma hops remind of of Columbus hops.
T> This is kind of a mess... just not balanced very properly... also where did all the hops go? Nice roasted malt flavor and slight bitter linger. The finish saves this from being completely dissapointing.
M> Not very carbonated... a little thin, especially for the style.
D> Surprisingly this beer is very drinkable - good aroma, decent (although lacking) flavor. This seems like a good beer for BBQs, parties, etc. The totally tame taste and high ABV seems like this would be a good "everyman" beer

This is my first IPA and I have to say, not a great impression has been made on me. I like the look and it had a hearty smell too it, like others said sort of a piney-ness to it. The taste however was very bitter, I don't feel that I'm experienced enough in the IPA category to properly judge, HOWEVER, the bitterness and aftertaste for me was not something I thoroughly enjoyed. I'll continue trying out various ipa's and rewrite a review if I feel I didn't do this one justice but I will say they put enough of a alcohol percentage in to it so that I didn't completely waste my money away!
