The thing that I like most about the appearance of this beer is the creaminess of the head. It foretells of a loaded beer that has a slightly syrupy viscosity and delicate but ample carbonation.
The smell of cascade hops is immediately pleasant. The smell of cascades always gives me a strong craving for beer, but it's a very welcome craving. It smells very sweet and flowery
The taste is anything but neutral. It starts sweet and floral and has a strong lingering botanical bitterness that is only momentarily cleared when you take the next sip. It's like this beer is engineered to increase your sipping rate. Pine, solvent citrus, and some alcohol are present upon exhalation.
IMO, this is the best widely distributed IPA in California.
Serving type: on-tap

3.91/5 rDev -7.3%

A-a clear amber with visible carbonation and three fingers worth of egg shell head
S-pine and citrus hops, light fruitiness, bready malt
T-very hop forward with pine and citrus bitterness front and center with caramel malt very much in the background. Some light fruits in the middle but most of the taste is full on bitterness.
M-medium body, light carbonation which feels almost flat?( best by date is either 2/2014 or 12/2014), bitter finish
Overall maybe it's just an old bottle but it could do with a bit more carbonation, that said this has huge in your face bitterness, everything else is in the background
