look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Fresh bottled the other day; poured in a tulip glass for serving.
A: Beer has a splendid golden-brown hue, barely any noticeable head and is actually more transparent than you'd think.
S: Big hop profile, considering it's a standard IPA. Very flowery and piney, which is its most outstanding aspect.
T: Crisp and light -- actually less bitterness than you'd anticipate given the aroma. Over time in glass, taste seems to settle on the backend of each sip.
M: Airy with mild carbonation. Body's not too heavy, which keeps it refreshing.
O: High quality beer for the price you're paying ($4.99 for a 22 oz. bomber). If you're focused on hop flavor and aroma as big elements to your brew, this is worth a try for sure.

On-tap at Venice Ale House, Venice, CA
A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that gradually died down.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with some hints of pine resin hops. The piney hops become stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell except that the pine resin hops stand out more prominently. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a nice IPA that has a good mix of citrusy and pine resin hops.
Serving type: on-tap
