poured from a bottle to a clear pint glass: yields a fluffy 2-finger head with hangs around, and then reduces to a thin layer of foam. the body is a nice light amber color that is cloudy and has sediment kicking around in it. lacing hangs around the glass.
ah, west coast IPA... pine... citrus (aka grapefruit)... and all around pungent. nice.
the taste is very similar to the smell as one might know. upfront hops try to yield to some maltiness, but then is simply smashed into the ground by more hops. more than enough bitterness in this sticky IPA, with the aforementioned aroma qualities of pine, citrus, earth, and all around bitter / pungent flavors. dry, but not super-dry. it's good... if you like the hops!
medium-light body, and a bit slick and oily from all those hops. the bitterness is enhanced by the prickling carbonation.
very drinkable... but only if you like this 95 ibu type of beer. i can have more than one, but could i have say, a malty lager after this? probably not. ok, i could but i don't think i'd taste much of it. this is another "sandpaper the tongue" type beer... which is fine with me!

This beer is alright, I have had too many great ones lately. But this one is not bad. I need to try the more hardcore ones.
Appearance: Dark golden amber. Some Head but not too much not a bad beer on the above average account.
Smell: Not a lot going on compared to others .But it was a good beer.
Taste: Enjoyable, some hops, actually strong on the hops but it also has a sweet malt backbone that balances things out. Not the best tasting beer that I have had but for a four pack you can do much better, in my opinion.
Overall: I didnt think this was a bad beer but there are better ones too. Solidly above average but not outstanding.
