Various times consumed in that IPA glass, sometimes in a mug but most of the time in a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy dark orange color running close to brown.
A light half fingered white foamy head appears and dissipates within a good minute.
Light lacing trickles but yet tries to cling.
The smell had a nice sweet citrus and somewhat bitter hops in a light sort of way.
The taste followed the aroma and carried a nice super bittersweet conglomeration of citrus/slight grapefruit. The aftertaste recedes quickly from the grapefruitiness to the finish.
The mouthfeel had a nice big bittersweet harshness rolling over my tongue to lead to a light to medium body. Good carbonation for the style and for me.
Overall, for the style this one hits well. Don't listen to the haters, drink up!

Disgusting pine tree taste that is very much different from most west coast IPAs.

This IPA suffers from "beery beer syndrome". It's got citrus and hops upfront, but they're light and don't have enough strength or depth to hold the flavor throughout the entire development. This gives you a beer that only has good flavor has soon as you swallow but immediately fades into a basic beer taste like Corona or the like. Not nasty, but not good. Would be a good starter IPA for those new to the style or craft beer in general, but won't impress anyone with any kind of drinking experience.

Despite the generic label this is an exceptional IPA in the lower price range. I really try to keep this in my beer pantry at all times. One very solid product.
