This beer pours a nice orange/copper color with a slight haze to it. A bubbly light tan head sits on top of this fine ale. It has some nice sticking properties to it as well.

Smell is somewhat mild for an Ipa, slight citrus aroma from the hops and some whiffs of sweet grainy malts are detected.

Taste is very balanced between the hops and malts. Somewhat tame as far as West Coast Ipa's go. Not nearly as hoppy as Green Flash.

Medium mouthfeel with a slight chewiness.

Drinkability is pretty good. I could see myself doing a sixer of these no problem.

Morey's Bottom Line: Everything about this beer is good, but nothing jumps out as great (hence the 4's straight across the board). Would definitely buy this again though.
