A - Pours a golden amber with puffy two finger head that dissipates quickly. Lots of carbonation rising from the bottom.
S - Gentle piney grapefruit aroma. Not wholly strong, but a good blend.
T - Great amount of hops up front. Definitely balanced evenly between malt and hops. Unfortunately, the malt comes so intensely that I can't fully sense the flavor of the hops. More piney than anything I would say, but it masks it just a bit.
M - Very clean and crisp. A great mouthfeel. Good light-to-medium body, ideal for an IPA.
Overall - A I felt the smell and taste to be a little lacking in full flavor. This may be one of the only times where I use balance as a criticism. But still, a good IPA

Great hoppy IPA, the pint was that was clear gold....tasted similar to DFH 60 min. Not exactly like it tho. Had total of three pints and couldn't find a problem with any of them. Also the head lasted most of the way down.. Went great with the fish and chips. A Solid I.P.A. one of my favorites.

This ale pours a crystal clear golden amber color with a thick white head that slowly gives way to a nice film and lacing. The aroma is more subtle than most west coast ipas. It consists of a generous amount of citrus hops with a slight malt backbone and some pine and grass notes. This offering sips very clean, light and smooth with just enough mouth coating resin to make it very delicious. The flavor is much more forward than the aroma lets on with a substantial amount of citrus and pine resolving to a nice malty sweetness and finishing with a lasting hoppy bitterness. This is a very well crafted ipa and can stand up with Stone and Green Flash as some of the best widely available west coast ipas.
