A= Nice golden amber with a nice head.

S= Toasty Citrus

T= Clean, bitter hoppiness. Oily Finish

M= Good carbonation, light body

O= Nice go to IPA that available to the masses, good beginner beer for freshmen hopheads

Served in a bottle.

I like that this beer is somewhat inexpensive and that you can buy in most chain supermarkets. This is the IPA I use to introduce people to the hoppy bitter goodness that is IPAs.

Brilliant light gold with a solid finger and a half of tight foam. Excellent retention. Spotty lace.

Resinous and citrus hops on the nose. A good amount of earthiness, as well. Slight toast.

Resiny at first, followed by earthiness, followed by foul B.O. taste. Gross. No malt to speak of. Very bitter on the finish with lingering bitterness.

Medium bodied with good carbonation.

With the exception of that horrible flavor and a bit too much bitterness, this would be a very good IPA.
