Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint glass, A nice light, crystal clear light copper color with a 2 finger off white head. The smell is very west coast IPA with resiny and citrus hop aroma.
The taste is very well balanced. There is a definite citrus hop up front followed by smooth malt sweetness with some hints of fruit. The finish is very clean with hints of grapefruit and slight hints f grass. There is a lingering but pleasant hop bitterness. Even though it's unmistakably an IPA it's not what I would call a hop bomb. I will definitely be buying more of this.

On tap at BC's Pizza and Beer
A: Pours a deep golden yellow with nice white head that fades and laces nicely
S: First thing I get is the malt sweetness, followed immediately by tropical and citrus hoppy goodness.
T: Big citrus hop kick, a little almost tropical fruit like notes in there, all well balanced by malt sweetness. There's a bit of grapefruit bitterness on the finish that hangs around.
M: Medium body, medium carbonation, very refreshing
O: I spend so much time trying new stuff that brews like this from right in my back yard often get ignored. Drinking them for the first time in a while is like sitting down with an old friend. Very tasty brew that hits the spot.

Poured a two month-old 12 oz bottle into a willi glass. It's a clear gold with slight orange color and a one finger tight head and minimal lacing. Beautiful floral and citrus notes on the aroma with just a touch of dank. Taste is of citrus, particularly orange, and malty sweetness, followed by a hint of dank. Mouth is perfect for the style. Overall, this is a great IPA. I wish I could get it easier where I'm at.
