Pours hazy orange with a small off white head. Good amount of splotchy lacing.
Smell is floral hops tropical fruit and minor bread dough.
Taste is piney bitter hops with enough tropical fruit and bready malts to back up the hops.
Mouthfeel is just right carbonation is just enough. Nice medium bitter and fruity finish.
Overall a tasty and easy drinking IPA from Bend, OR. I'm starting to think about relocating to Bend.

Im tired of having to write out the required this and that of beers and filling out the required space for writing reviews. If I could write short and concise write ups of these beers I would give all beers their due time in the rating process…After all I use this site for personal recollection more than anything...

ANYHOO…

I LOVE THIS BEER…Ive drank WAY more beers than Ive reviewed on this site. That being said, I see that Heady Topper is the end all be all of beers. Living in Vermont I know this to be some sort of phenomenon regarded as true. Im not here to tell you HT is a bad beer. Far from it. Its amazing. But is it overhyped? YES.
I honestly and 100% believe that this beer is the best APA in a can, dollar for dollar with HT. And best of all you can enjoy it at anytime because you don't have to hunt it down and wait hours in line for it.

What can I say? This 802 kid LOVES North-Left Coast hops.
