L: 1inch of white pillow-like layer of head, and a body color of hazy orange, and this beer left a beautiful spider web of lacing around my glass. Smell: Wonderful citrus, grassy and hoppy aroma. Taste: A great complexity of a earthy hoppy flavor up-front, with a very clean finish at the end. M. Feel: Very carbonated, which helped pronounced the flavors even more; This beer, lets you know that it's a beer. Great American IPA, right now it's my favorite

Wow sweet citrus followed by balanced mouthy aftertaste.

Golden color, floral aroma, lighter in taste. The hops are not over powering and it finishes off with a crips mouth feel. The beer really does not stand out to me. Still a good ipa.

Pours orange with a minimal off white head. Aroma is dank, full of sticky ganja, with florals, citrus, a little pine, and toasted grains. Flavor is pretty similar. Medium bodied, dense mouthfeel. Overall, solid IPA. Like their 420 Extra Pale Ale would drink again, won't seek it out though.

My rating: 3.60
