Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass.

A: Pours a nice amber color, with a fluffy white head. Dissipates quickly, leaving some light lacing.

S: Not as strong as I would expect from an IPA. What I do get is light citrus and hops, but again, quite subtle.

T: Smooth, floral, citrus, and hoppy. Finishes slightly bitter, but well balanced.

M: Light and decently carbonated. Good for an IPA - very drinkable.

O: Very solid IPA. Something I'd love to have around the house - reminds me of a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, but heavier on the hop-characteristics. A great go-to IPA.

Pours a hazy orange color with a white head and nice lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel along with mild citrus hops. Taste is also caramel sweet at the beginning with a solid hop bitterness that doesn't overwhelm the flavor of the beer. Seems to be balanced but overall less hoppy than other west coast IPAs. Moderate body.
