look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

From a bottle into a pint glass in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Smell is mild and of pine/hops.

Appearance is dark golden bronze.

Taste is a very smooth, nice malt to hops ballance.

Mouthfeel is clean and smooth, no alcohol bite.

Overall a very good California IPA easily accessible here in Nebraska...gbr!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy dark gold with a one finger head that remains fluffy. Excellent head retention.

Smell is citrusy hops. Some grapefruit, orange and pineapple. Not much malt detectable.

The flavor is extremely hoppy. Citrusy hops dominate with maybe a touch of malt sneaking through. Bitterness is assertive but not over the top. Alcohol is not detectable in the least.

This is an excellent brew and definitely one of the better west coast IPA's.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Clear amber / orange with a large white fizzy head, quite lingering.
S: Tropical scent here, with lots of mango, litchi, passion-fruit, some pineapple, loads of piney, resinous aromas along with some citruses
T: The taste follows more or less the nose with tropical fruits, citruses and resinous taste, but fainter and also a bit more malty. Finishes very bitter with an impressive length on the palate.
M: Medium bodied, quite velvety but a bit too much carbonated for my taste. Very very dry finish.
O: A great IPA, easily drinkable, tasty and bitter. Loved that!
