look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served from a can into a snifter purchased @ Fred Meyers in Portland, OR for $8.49. Couldn't pass this up at that price, I got to try a new beer and I really like canned micros.

A> A beautiful beer. It pours a hazy burnt orange with a stunning 2 finger thick head that has good retention. I can't find anything to critique about the look of this brew.

S> The smell is dominated by the hops, lemony and a little bit sour almost like a cheese, although strangely perfume like. Overall a pretty interesting and good bouquet.

T> Surprisingly strong malt presence that takes on butter like qualities. The hops are still a strong presence, and characterics of lemon in the aroma now show their more bitter qualities diving into the realms of citrus pith and pine. A sweet finish that mingles with the hops nicely.

M> A nice mouthfeel, a bit thick but I like a beer with a bit of "chew" to it. Appropriate carbonation for the style. This beer also has a wonderful oily feel from the resin of the hops. This brew just feels loaded with wonderful hops and malts and it really comes across.

O> Overall this beer is either really good or outstanding in every way you can break it down. In my opinion this is a really, really good IPA with a piney/pithy/cheesy hop profile and a nice English IPA like malt profile. Anderson Valley has really done a superb job of mixing both of these qualities, walking the thin red line that is balancing an IPA. A strong, sweet malt that somehow knows not to get in the way of the true star, the wonderful hops. In the end this beer just feels like the brewers stuffed it with wonderful malts and hops. Every aspect of this beer speaks to it's quality and the passion of the brewers. This is not my favorite IPA but it's a damn good beer and truly worthy of being called craft beer.
