Got this one because it is routinely dubbed as one of the best beers in america.
A - Beautiful copper color. Nice white head with nice lacing. Clear beer.
S - Amazing hop nose with strong Pacific NW hops. Very citrus hop character that pulls you in. Not really any other scents coming through at 40 degrees.
T - Has a great hop flavor that holds the beer nicely on the tongue . It's a nice IPA that has everything you would desire in an IPA. Light hints of malt and a subtle ale character that make gives it some balance but definitely a hop heavy brew. Nice moderate bitter finish along with some alcohol make this a great drinking beer.
M - Moderate mouth-feel in the middle but the hops linger and the bitterness quenches. Great carbonation making the beer really pop.
Overall, a terrific NW IPA. I really enjoyed this IPA based on the pronounced hops and a drinkable feel. I'd definitely recommend it for the great flavor. A word of caution I did get pretty sleepy after two of these so don't drink and drive with this bad boy.
