Served from a 24oz bottle 1/22/13 into a Lagunitas glass.
A - Reddish amber color, good clarity, one of the most appetizing colors you will find in an IPA. 2 finger head with medium retention, the bubbles seem to come up from the most perfect spots in the glass when you pour a West Coast IPA.
S - Deep hop profile, resin and grapefruit give way to a hop-flower sweetness that screams west coast hops. Smell gives a certain bite of it's own.
T - I have had bottles of West Coast IPA six months old that still taste like fresh hops. This one was almost 3 months old and still tastes fresh and potent. Almost any hop taste that comes from west of the Mississippi can be detected, and this beer is really in the elite class of what a true American IPA is. The malt in this beer is just enough to balance out the hops but doesn't have any sort of English cracker taste.
M - Smooth, with a nice hop bite that reminds you that you're drinking an IPA. Has a nice amber/red ale consistency that gets better as the glass gets emptier.
O - Overall one of my favorite beers. In an elite class of IPAs and sets a standard for depth in hop flavor. The hops in this beer will stay longer than almost any IPA and the bitterness is addicting.
