4.23/5 rDev +4.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
poured from a growler (filled at Whole Foods) into a larger tulip glass...
I've had this from a can previously and found it to be an easy-to-drink IPA, not complex, but very well balanced and smooth with a lemony-citrus aftertaste.
tonight, I am compaing it with some other IPA's on tap at Whole Foods: Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, Mother Road Lost Highway Black IPA, Dragoon IPA, and the standard for double IPA's Dogfish Head 90. I will also pour a Stone IPA from a bottle before the evening is over...
color and appearance are a dark honey yellow with a head that settles down to about 1/4"
smell is nice, not overwhelming. a blend of the hops used: Cascade, Glacier, Magnum, Liberty, Simcoe
taste is similarly balanced, malt and hops do not overwhelm each other, but complement and result in a very pleasant mouthfeel...
In my search for the perfect IPA, this one is definitely in the top 20, and maybe in the top 10!

A - 4 - Great looking beer with thick white head that leaves huge lacing. Golden-amber color like most ipas, crystal clear.
S - 4.25 - Huge grapefruit and citrus zest. Pineapple, smells super fresh.
T - 4.25 - Great grapefruit, citrus zest, mango and pineapple. Tastes a little like a great homebrewed IPA. Very sweet caramel malt background.

O - 4.25 - Great beer. Proud to say it's from Arizona.
