4.23/5 rDev +5%
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!

Bright reddish-orange with a full, bubbly, off-white head that tops out right above the rim and pushes its pungent aroma into the room. Closer inspection reveals citrus (grapefruit and lemon) and some rind. Taste is more subdued that the aroma would indicate. Barely hoppy and a bit chalky. Some light fruits are noticed. Pretty flat in all domains. Tastes like it's well past any reasonable prime, but there's no decipherable freshness dating on the can. So be it.
