Odd beer. I saw the 100 rating and I was pretty excited. Pours a copper color with nice lacing. The smell is odd to me. I don't get it. Honestly, the taste was poor to me - had a chemical taste and the aftertaste was bad. I looked for an expiry date and couldn't find it, but they seem to to sell a lot here at Lower Depths. I will need to try again another time, as I didn't like this but everyone else does

Another great craft beer in a can, poured into a Leffe Tulip.
An original, a meditation beer. Sit outside and sip from a tulip glass.

A- An awesome looking beer. One of the best rounded, floaty, heads. Feel like they do something to make it so pronounced, rounded, dense, and lasting. The retention is impressive. The head is light creamy colored, and creamy looking. The lacing is lasting, strong and sticky. The beer pours hazy apricot. Best looking IPA ever. Out of a can!

S- Subtle. Not strong waft... a calm hop presence... subtle fruity citrusy scent and a bit of Sierra stream. Seriously, smells like outdoor water.

T- Lovely first impression of freshness, with inviting and not overwhelming hops. The subtle hop aroma leads to a smooth and balanced taste. The beer is honey sweet tempered with a bitter, but not overwhelming floral esters finish. Lovely and original, in the direction of STONE IPA, but lighter.
Taste gets better as you go along. A great food beer, as well as a great meditation beer.

M- I enjoy the texture of this beer: starts creamy, but has a lighter weight. lovely and refreshing, yet, not as much gravity as a STONE IPA, TITAN, or even a 21st Amendment.

O- A must try, original ipa. Lighter smell, fresh, not over whelming, with no cliche, very original, outdoorsy, cascade hops.

Very exciting beer!

Amber color with lots of thick off-white head with good retention and leaving laces, actually almost a curtain on the glass.
Good citric aroma from its hops with notes of grapefruit and a bit of passion fruit, and hints of pine.
Nice bitter and flavorful taste, slightly toasted malts with a citric and fruity taste with hints of grapefruit. Very dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium to full body with good carbonation and tiny bubbles. Alcohol of 7% ABV is simply not felt.
Quality beer and very well balanced American IPA. Very drinkable for its style.
