A - Golden brilliantly clear body with moderate white head. Lacing looks good.

S - Big fresh hop aroma. Orange citrus and sweet floral hop aromas. Slight bready malt character helps round it out.

T - Good sharp clean bitter as soon as it hits the tongue. Could be the "perfect" level of bitterness for an IPA! The bready malt aroma is also here in the taste. It helps the beer finish really nice and leaves me wanting more. I wish the hop flavors in this beer were a bit stronger.

M - Medium bodied with a sticky coating on the tongue. Probably due to the amount of hops used in the beer. Good carbonation level and no alcohol warmth.

O - Good solid example of what an IPA should be. I feel it could be pushed a bit further in terms of flavor. Overall a very good beer though.

A. Light bronze color with a ton of bubbles that leave a huge white head and tons of lacing. Completely clear.

S. Very, very hoppy scent.

T. It has a nice honey and lemon taste. Very hoppy. There's some caramel sweetness there. A bit of a rye taste, too.

M. For a thick IPA, it has refreshing quality to it.

O. Very nice and floral IPA with a strong hoppy taste. For an everyday beer, it is quite fantastic.

Had this while at the Giants game in San Francisco. Pours a clear, golden colour. tastes lightly hoppy with a slight malt finish. Pine and grass notes linger in there too. Nothing to amazing about this beer, but it beats the other alternatives at a ball game. that has to count for something.
