2.84/5  rDev -27%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Not sure what all the fuss is about here....
Appearance - very average light golden colored, with minimal to no carbonation, yet the orange hue is persistent.

Smell - Sweet, of malts and sugars with a hint of bitterness and sharpness. Slightly bitter and strong

Taste - Very sweet. Very sugary and malty is overpowering and takes away from the overall feel of this beer. The sharp taste lingers for a long period of time after drinking and leaves a semi-bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Due to sharp and sweet tastes, the beer lingers too much and feels heavy and weighed down. Definitely a slow sipping beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- poured a nice clear, effervescent, light amber. Big creamy white head has great retention and leaves big lacing.

S- big malt caramel aromas and some mild but pleasant pine hops

T- follows closely with aroma. Much more malt forward than other West Coast IPAs. It's got some hops, don't get me wrong, but it's much closer to an English-style IPA.

M- keeping in line with it's more English in that it's thinner and not as resinous as US-style IPAs

O- a really good well-balance IPA

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Super clear golden straw. Decent lacing with good enough head retention.

Nose: Pine, citrus, and a tiny bit of straw. A very clean and upfront hoppy smell.

Taste: nice crisp mouthfeel with a coppery aftertaste. The hops and carbonation dance around on a mild malty dance floor. It has a metallic taste throughout.

Notes: Have been drinking this for years. It is nice, and widely available.
