Dark for an IPA and almost orange in color. Big foamy head and lots of bubbles rising to the top upon pouring. The aroma is slightly citrusy and not particularly big. This leads to a surprise because this is a powerful IPA that fills the mouth big time. I like hoppiness but would prefer a little more complexity over the fairly one-dimensional flavor of this stuff. If you don't like big Left Coast IPA's this isn't for you. Overall I liked it but will probably pick something else off the shelf next time I go for an IPA.

Pours deep orange and with a shine from clarity. A fat head of off white foam finally settles so you can drink. Stream of bubbles to look at while you wait. Nose is orange. Orange peel, orange ripeness, fruit sweetness and tropical backnotes. A bit of subtle and earthy pine This beer is about 3 moths old so if the pine isi stronger in yours that could be why. Taste is wonderful .light malt, practically invisible on the palate except for some nuttiness. Once the palate is indoctrinated the nutty flavor subsides and you are left with only hop fruits. Orange and more orange, the ripe orange, the pith the bitter seed. Authentic and light in the drink. Finishes with a bitter than deserves your attention. This bitter while earthy and while moderate actually scoops up the entire beer in it's aftertaste and leaves it at the back palate .
I'll have another one of these. You could drink this beer all day.
