No discernable fresness or bottled on date which is always a concern with a west coast beer around here as many are not very fresh.

Nice enough looking beer Hillary with good lacing and gold amber to brown color.

Has a hoppy grapefruit smell with a touch of pine but not bursting our of the bottle like a fresh good west coast style IPA. Nice hoppy fruity taste with bitter afterkick that I like. Medium to full bodied for an IPA.

Goes down nicely especially as the 7.3% abv borders on double ipa territory. Will buy again but wish they'd tell me how fresh it is.

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

App: A very clear, clean and crisp looking with orange hue poured initially to approx. 2 fingers of foamy white head which receeded quickly leaving some individual spots of lace.

Smell: Very noticeable citrus and hops, with a little cinnamon.

Taste: The hops punch you in the throat like a karate black belt, and the taste of grapefruit stays on the pallet for a while.

MF: Very crisp, very smooth.

OA: Very, very nice brew.
