Served on tap in a pint glass at a neighborhood joint.

A-Copper/orange color, translucent. One finger head with good lacing.

S-Pine,citrus,flowery. The aroma just fills the glass as I drink it.

T-A flavor 'tree'. Pine and citrus. Good.

M-Medium body that could use a little more carbonation. Smooth, though.

O-A winner, looks and tasted like an IPA should, sharp and hoppy.

Poured from bottle into pint glass.

A: Light, clear copper with a one finger head. Resolves into a thin but ample lacing. Quite a lot of bubbles.

S: Ketones throughout, with a nice biscuity malt backbone. Quite a bit of citrus; I'm assuming some considerable aroma hopping with Cascade or something similar.

T: Pretty lackluster here. Alcohol is prevalent throughout, and there is a nice biscuit malt backbone, similar to the smell. While there is a strong bitterness, hop flavors aren't quite as abundant as I would have hoped. There's a bit of citrus and a bit of pine; perhaps a bit of orange if you search for it. Finishes clean.

M: Carbonation leaves a sharp feeling, but it worked ok for me. Alcohol presence is nice and doesn't linger too much.

O: A decent IPA, but nothing to write home about. I'd much rather drink a Stone or a multitude of other West Coast IPAs.
