A: Golden, rust, cloudy with hardly any carbonation. Almost no head at all.
S: Hops, Citris fruits like grapefruit and lemon. Textbook IPA
T: Bitterness up front with a lingering grapefruit flavor. Again Textbook IPA
M: Classic IPA mouthfeel with overall crisp bitterness on the tongue.
O: If you were to create a model IPA and serve it to someone who has never had one, this would be a good one to start with. Very good, with nothing off putting about it. But at the same time, there is nothing that puts it on the next level that makes it truly unique.

12 oz bottle, best by 11/28/14

2014 formula, 8.1%, 95 IBU

Clear, amber body. Decent amount of head and retention. Juicy, fresh hop aroma with a fairly large caramel malt backbone. Taste is a little bit more malt than I was expecting. Good carbonation.

Have no idea when this was bottled. Seems to be pretty fresh though. A very solid west coast style IPA. Not sure how it stacks up to the old recipe.
