Big thanks to CruisaC for sending me this one. Orange-yellow color with the slightest haze, good thick foam of a head. Smells like resiny hops, a little . Flavor is super hoppy, very bitter finish, slight bit of malt holding it all together. Whew, this is very bitter. Overall a good IPA and it is what the label says but this can't touch the west coast. Maybe I need one straight off the bottling line.

From notes at a beer tasting. 12oz bottle poured into a Reidel beer glass. No date on bottle, but person who brought them to the tasting stated that they had just arrived in the local bottle store.

Appearance: Mostly clear coppery amber with just the barest hint of haze. Impressive off-white head on pouring with lots of lacing the whole way down the glass. Nice looking beer.

Smell: Quite strong in aromatic hops. Grapefruit, papaya, orange zest, maybe a hint of pine as well. Deep and nice aroma with some malt sweetness under it all.

Taste: Tastes much like it smells. Hoppy fruit and citrus flavors up front, then transition into a solid malt middle. The finish is strongly bitter and has some bite to it, and definitely can linger quite a bit as it warms up.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and nicely thick, with just right carbonation.

Overall / Drinkability: Quite drinkable - I found this one quite enjoyable and probably could have had another, which makes this one a bit dangerous. Definitely an above average AIPA - great aroma and taste, although the finish is a bit powerful at times.
