Thanks to Scott for this bottle

A: Lighter brown (almost yellow) body with two finger head with good amount of lacing.

S: Some grain (???), some bittering hops, some malt... that's about it really. Very mediocre

T: okay - so this beer tastes great. In fact, it's quite awesome. IPA with nice tropical and citrous hops but also with good amount of malt. There is this... slightly off-grain-y taste. Not sure what it is but it didn't botter me as much in the taste than it did on the nose. Quite refreshing.

M: Good amount of carbonation, medium body for APA.

O: Definitely recommended. I just had Head Hunter before this and I can't decide which one I prefer over the other. They're both just okay for me.

As far as the the IPAs go, I would say VT > So CAL > OH for now.

Poured from a bottle.
Beautiful yellow to slightly copper color. Just slightly darker than a traditional lager or pilsner. (The first beers I drank were yellow in color so it's what I always think of for beer.)
Nice light citrusy hops aroma.
The taste of hops is definite but not overwhelming. Slight citrus taste balances the hops.
The mouthfeel is light.
Overall a good IPA that is not overwhelming with the hops.
