Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a nice gold color, average finger of head, medium lacing.
S - Some dank hops, grapefruit, pine and a light crystal malt.
T - Citrus hops, orange juice, nice balanced malt flavor, pine on the end.
M - Very clean beer, balanced, and not too heavy.
O - A classic West Coast IPA done right, though last time I got this, it was $64 a case, yikes. Good on taste, bad on value.
