Poured from the bottle.

Orange/gold in colour with a lingering frothy head. Citrus-hops nose, pretty strong. The taste was much lighter than expected, less intense hop-taste than the smell lead on. Clean finish, not much bitterness to the aftertaste, unlike most IPAs.

Would I buy it again? Yes.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a shaker pint, had pretty respectable retention, white fluffy head, really solid lacing. Colour is an amber straw gold.

Smell has a herbally citrus hopiness that is quite assertive. Some floral character, this is quite an intense bitter nose, pretty balanced and interesting.

Taste has strong hop character come through - juicy and fruity, a subtle malt sweetness, with lots of pine resin and grapefruit notes on the end. Malt body is pretty good, bit overshadowed but balances out decently well.

Mouthfeel has a strong bite initially, with a good level of carbonation, moderate body with a nice refreshing lightness. Good drinkability, pretty sessionable as far as the west-coast ipa's go.

A nice solid offering, definitely hop forward, but remains pretty well balanced throughout. Quite good, though at times feels a bit stale or leaning towards the heavier sappy flavours. Worth trying, a pretty well-made assertive IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. No freshness date that I can find.

A: Pours a caramel amber color, can easily see through it. About a 2 finger head which dissipated quickly. Tons of sticky lacing and carbonation bubbles.

S: Smell is reminiscent of Lagunitas Sucks which makes sense. Dankness, citrus pine.

T: Bitter at first, crisp clean flavor. Malt sweetness, pine and citrus hop flavor. Refreshing and sessionable.

M: Bit thin, but not distractingly so. Moderate carbonation with a dry clean finish.

O: Very solid offering, tastey and refreshing though does little to elevate itself above the crowd. Nothing wrong with that, good solid beer.
