4.34/5 rDev +6.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle (best by 4-21-13) to a tulip glass
A- pours a crystal clear ruby red with a 1 finger tight bubbled frothy head, classic ipa look
S- a musty sweet malt on the front of the nose, followed by a pungent grapefruit citrus, lemons, sugary orange juice, and fresh bud
T- toffee malts, pine, grapefruit, orange, lemon zest. Just huge citrus hops, bready malt backbone, and a bitter finish
M- medium bodied, medium carbonation, sweet, citrusy, dry and bitter
O- classic west coast ipa, huge citrus hops, great malt backbone, amazing balance. Sculpin may get most of the allcolaydes, but Big Eye in IMO is a bit more balanced, and just as tasty

Golden light-orange color. Sudsy topper. Looks good. Could do without the frosted glass.
Pine, citrusy orange, apricot, and spicy floral notes. Lotta hoppy in the nose. Pale semi-sweet malty balance going on stung by a piquant alcohol odor.
Major pine, citrus, and spicy woodiness. A lot of bitterness, upfront, with a big malt punchiness. Excellently hoppy. A little bruising.
Mouthfeel is delightfully engaging. Carbonated well. Nice spiciness. Body has some crush to it. Points knocked for heavy heat.
Solid IPA. Not a typically West Coast, West Coast IPA.
Serving type: on-tap
