Beautiful orange/copper color with a nice foamy white head.

Smells are typical of west coast IPA's but still very pleasant. Cirtusy, grassy, piney hops.

Taste is quite hoppy and bitter. A little too bitter. I would have enjoyed a little more maltiness to balance this one out. It is crisp and tangy.

Drinkable for the abv but the bitterness takes away from the drinkability a bit.

If you're in the mood for a big hoppy ipa this one is pretty good.

nice heads and lacing. like grandma's doily's down the inside of my glass.

real nice nose of columbus hops.

taste is a hop bomp. all the pine, citrus you love in west coast ipa's. long spicy herbal finish on the palate that ends with a pine resin. sweet bready malt that compliments the hops

mouthfeel is full and substantial.

This is one hell of an IPA. Top 5 in my book.
