My go-to beer during my bachelor party in Vegas. Usually drunk straight out of the bottle. When poured from 12 oz bottle, it is a pint glass. Bottle Pours a cloudy amber with a good off white head. The head is froathy and lasting. Produces some spotty lacing. Has a good hoppy aroma. I get citrus, oranges, some malts, and some pine. Has a decent carbonation. The mouthfeel is good. A good bitter hoppy flavor. The alcohol is hidden well. Has a clean crisp taste. The texture is very middle of the road. Has a medium body. Has a good finish with a good hoppy aftertaste.

A- Pours a nice orangeish amber color with a small off white head that disspates quickly

S- Has a nice citrus hops profile to it. also picking up some tangerine and sweet malts as well

T- Has a bitter hops flavor right off the bat then the sweet malts come through in the middle and ending wth a nice tangerine hop finish.

M-Medium to light bodied with good carbaontion

D-Overall this was a solid IPA. maybe a tad bit bitter at the begginning for some but overall very nice. I was hoping for some WOW factor to pop out on this one but there wasn't one. So still a good ipa but wont be getting it again unless it becomes local.

This is a good IPA, and most love everything about this IPA. I love the pine feeling once you taste it. This IPA didn't have the right amount of grapefruit that I was looking for. Strong malt backbone of caramel, toffee, and this is a character with most West Coast IPA's. I tend to like less of that these days. This is good, or great by many standards, but I wanted more. Still very good.

A: Deep red-orange color. Creamy off-white head retains well at a half inch.

S: Sugary ruby red grapefruit, pine, blood orange. Hop spiciness. Smells like bitterness will be ample. Underlying malt scents of caramel ans toffee.
