12 oz bottle (4-18-12)

A- Pours a translucent copper with one finger white head. Nice lacing.

S- Smell is big citrus with some bready malt.

T- Big citrus grapefruit nicely balanced with a malt backbone.

M- Nice medium mouthfeel with a lingering bitterness on the tongue.

O- A very solid IPA that verges onto the DIPA spectrum. Found in many supermarkets in the NW, this is a solid go to.

I thought this was a British beer I had not heard of yet when I ordered it...its a CA brew. Anyway I was completely fooled and it compares well to a Fullers ESB but is milder and no 'fruity' undertone. Lots of citrus,piney, lovely hops not overpowering.

The 7.5% is surprising I would have thought it was lower. I would drink this again, even as a session beer.
