Finally tried some West Coast IPA that I've been holding onto for a week or two. Appearance was nice. Head does go away a bit quickly though.

Smell is outstanding. Excellent blend of all these hops - but you can't smell much else. Although that's probably the point of an American IPA. At 7% ABV, I'm not sure if it's still an IPA and probably is in the gray area between an IPA and DIPA.

Taste was excellent. Very nice blend of hoppiness and the flavors that each imparts to this brew. It makes for a pleasant taste.

Mouthfeel was outstanding for something as bitter as this should be. Went down smooth and clean even though it was very bitter and left a hoppy/bitter aftertaste. It wasn't a bad aftertaste though... but you sure feel that wallop from the hops but that doesn't detract from how smooth it goes down.

Drinkability is excellent. I would definitely stock up on this brew if it ran less than $15 a 6 pack. For now though, I'll enjoy the rest of the sixer that I've got and maybe buy some more in a few months. It might be sessionable but definitely don't plan on driving after that session.
