First off the bottle Is beautiful I love the art. Along with other Anderson valley beers. This particular brew is absolutely perfect and is hands down one of the best out there. Have had in both bottle and glass. Taste great high flavorful hops. Not your average citrus brew, though It still has flavorful of citrus, it also has a high range of nuts brewed and you can definitely taste. Overall this brew from Anderson valley is perfect and its really not available as much as I thought it would be as a la resident. So get your hands on a bottle

A- Impressive head gives way to nice lacing throughout the drinking, nice amber/copper color with minimal visible effervescence.

S- Pleasant sweet citrus notes, at first I was thinking bready but perhaps my nose was misguided.

T- I am trying to let this warm up a little but the first impression is this is an imminently drinkable full-flavored ale. Well balanced bitterness and sweetness.

M- This is a real palate pleaser, it's smooth and prompts another sip before long. (Hopefully not before it warms up enough for me to taste additional nuance)

O- I enjoyed this IPA and would certainly pick up another 6 pack of cans, it was a nice change of pace from the lighter colored IPAs.

Poured in a Spiegelgau glass: 4F head which quickly resolved itself.
Light copper color- an attractive beer.

The aroma was not strong- light grapefruit and other citrus.

Mouth feel: quite smooth for an IPA, not well-carbonated, and transitioning well to the taste.

The taste was different at warmer and colder temps.
Colder temps- more grapefruit, malty, and a hoppy finish with some bitterness.
Warmer temps- less citrus, less bitter, and a cherry-like fruit taste. I preferred the beer at slightly warmer temps.

Overall: quite distinctive. The beer is different than other IPAs: there is a cherry/citrus taste, the MF is smoother, and the finish is more even- not overly bitter.
Worth checking out.
