A: pours a nice copper gold color with a decent creamy white head that fades away in a few minutes. Fairly clear. Looks appetizing.

S: love it. Resins abound. This is a classic west coast ipa smell.

T: tastes piney. One of the few IPAs that tastes like it smells. No over powering bitterness. A lot of late hop additions.

M: a little thin. Good carbonation. Just expect a little more body that just will not happen.

O: I like this beer. One of my standards. Much better on tap than a bottle.

This is just a solid easy drinking IPA. If you're a hop head like myself and just want to take a break from the over the top bitter or grapefruity IPA's yet still want to enjoy a good clean-mildly bitter dry finishing IPA, this is your buddy right here.

Not the most complex IPA on the market, as far as depth of flavor goes, but really tasty and great for a summers day. You might actually be able to convert a few BMC drinkers with this one, cause the bitterness won't overwhelm. Yet it's still present enough to let you know that this ain't your daddy's beer.

Great beer..will be a regular in my fridge.

Aroma:  Subdued citrus and pine aroma.  

Appearance:  Amber orange color.  Two finger head with good lacing.

Flavor:  Pleasent citrus and pine flavors with very little bitterness.  Hop and malt balance from beginning to end.  Little to no lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel:   Medium body, with good carbonation.

Overall:  Drinks a lot like an East Coast IPA.  Hop aroma and flavors are all there, but well balanced with malt sweetness.  Could be a session beer, except the ABV will sneek up on you.  Recommended for all but the chronic hop heads.

12oz bottle poured into a lagunitas mason jar

A: clean clear orangey amber, with a little over a finger of head that dissapates nicley and leavs some touches of lacing

S: the aroma is a little on the weak side, smell is of
Citrus hops and a touch of pine, it smells good but unjust wish it were a bit more pungent in the aroma department.

T: delicious citrusy hops with a touch of pine and bitterness, overall the flavor is very well rounded, and delicious.

M: a light medium body with medium carbonation, it is very drinkable, and delicious. With a dry finish and a touch of bitter aftertaste.

O: a very good ipa, delicious and drinkable, with well balanced citrus hops flavor and a touch of pine, a great go to ipa.
