12oz to a pint glass. There is a picture of a bear with antlers on my beer.
Pours a very vivid golden copper with a finger of foam. Mild carbonation, lacing isn't bad. Retention could be a bit better, though
Nose is pretty spot on for an ipa. Strong juicy hops, pine, grapefruit and some citrus with some sweet malts present. Although it smells pretty good, the smell is pretty muted and I have to really stick my nose into the glass to get a good scent. Not very pungent, the only fault I find with the aroma
Taste follows the nose pretty well, hops, pine, grapefruit, come together with a bready malt. Nice bitterness, great ipa taste.
Feel is nice also, crisp and medium bodied, nice tingle on the tongue. Rounded wet sticky finish
Overall a good west coast ipa. Not the best by any means, but definitely does the style justice. I pick a six pack of this up every now and again, never disappointed

4.38/5 rDev +9.5%

Pours a clear copper with a big and very persistent head. Lots of lacing on the side of the glass. Smell is big citrusy grapefruit hops. Taste is mellow toasty carmel malt upfront. A little underlying malt sweetness throughout. Finishes with an herbal hop bitterness. Heavy creamy mouthfeel. This is a very rich tasting IPA. And by that I mean it has a fantastic maltiness behind the hops and even challenging the hops for center stage here. Also the heavy mouthfeel. Maybe the drinkability suffers a bit, but this is a great, and unique, IPA.

overall a good beer. This IPA seemed to have a little more sweetness than most but overall it seemed to balance out quite well. I like the way high IBUS but was pleased with this one also. Just a touch of creaminess added to the balance. Overall happy with this one. After reading other reviews, I was kind of mixed about trying, but once I did, I was glad I did...
