A- Pours very hazy in the deep orange-golden body. A big head forms and retains forever with good lacing as well. The haze and color really a good looking beer in the glass.

S- This IPA's dominant scent is, of course, hops bitterness. This smell starts with a touch of pine, but quickly moves toward citrus and more fruity notes. Not terribly bitter on the whole, this scent is balanced with some sweeter scents underneath the predominantly bitter qualities.

T- Starts off with the piney hops profile, same as the scent. Bitterness ramps up a little bit after the pine flavor subsides a little bit. The citrus flavors kick in after the pine flavors and then both flavor profiles intermingle with each other. No malt is detectable in, around, or under the hops bitterness. Lingering flavor is strong bitterness, mostly of the pine flavor from the beginning of the drink.

M- Kind of thin, but medium carbonation, making it fairly smooth. Easy to drink for the 7% ABV, but the hops do make their presence well known on the palate.

Overall, a good and standard everyday IPA. Very west coast in style with high levels of bitterness and little to balance it out; this is a hop heads dream standard IPA.
