This is a good beer. I have had beers I enjoy more, but overall this beer is well balanced and I am happy that I had the opportunity to try it. Fortunately I live in an area that is close enough to a state that carries this beer. I would like to try other beers from these guys. I had never really heard of them prior to Beer Camp, even though that beer wasn't all that spectacular, this one was.

Color: Golden straw color with a slight bit of reddish hue to it. Virtually no head to speak of and settled into a light lacing when allowed to sit for a few minutes.

Smell: Maybe it was me, but I didn't get a lot from the nose. It was not as pungent as some other West Coast beers that I have had. Maybe its their style or maybe the beer was losing some of the aroma due to age. I do live on the East Coast and this beer was marked for bottling at the end of May. It is now approaching September. 3 months shouldn't be that big of a deal, but the fresher the better with hop driven beers.

Taste: Nice balance, hops are still present but much like in the aroma they are not as dominant as other West Coast beers. I recently drank a Hop Stoopid that was just as old or older than this one and the hops remained for the most part intact. This beer was a bit boozy for me also, of course at 9.5% you should expect some alcohol. However, other brewers hide it better.

Overall: This was a solid experience. Better than most, but not as good as others. Its a solid above average beer but not in the mind blowing category.
