A - Golden in color. A nice 1" off white head. Beer is very clear. Doesn't look like much more than base grains in regards to the bill.
S - Orange citrus hops are the dominant characteristic. Slight breadiness balanced by fruity esters. A little resinous pine as well.
T - Straightforward IPA. Not fooling around. Solid hop flavor. Subtle hop harshness up front. I think the harsh grassiness from the hops indicates strong dry hopping. Very nice citrus and a strong bitterness on the finish.
M - Relatively thin for a big beer. Above average carbonation. Alcohol warmth is apparent.
O - Wow, what a great beer. I really like this. Not sure if I can get it in Ohio, but maybe soon. Solid straightforward west coast style IPA.
