Pours from the can a cloudy gold with two fingers of white foam. The nose is floral, pine and some malt. The pine is more predominant in the taste than the floral notes, and there's a decent bit of bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium mouth. Nice little IPA.

Great initial hoppy taste but terrible after taste. Tastes kind of like plastic

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Bright and clear gold with a rocky and large white head with nice retention and very good lacing.

Nose: Pine and some floral notes. Green and a little malt finish it out.

Taste: Smooth and calm malt up front which is pushed aside by metallic & aspirin. Carbonation and crisp and the lingering mouthfeel is a little sudsy and dry. Some alcohol heat comes through at the end.

Tried it really fresh (straight from the brewer).

Appearance: Very cloudy straw with a fat white head that left plenty of lace.

Smell: Strong floral and piney hops.

Taste: Bitterness is pronounced right up front, balanced well by a dry malt backbone. Alcohol is imperceptible, just some residual hop flavor at the end.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and carbonation.

Overall: By the book strong West Coast IPA (I probably would not be able to tell it apart from many others). Very good when fresh.
