3.71/5 rDev -12.1%
Served - Bottle poured into a Speiglau IPA glass, enjoy by March 2014.
Appearance - A deep amber. A little too dark for an IPA. One finger head with low carbonation.
Smell - Earthy hops, somewhat floral. Not a very strong smell at all.
Taste - Slightly bitter hops in the front with a malt presence on the finish.
Mouthfeel - Full on the tongue with a little carbonation dancing. Malt lingers.
Overall - It was a very solid and drinkable representation of the style. For something calling itself a west coast IPA, I was expecting much more citrus notes and less malt. It's a good beer but not a great beer. I felt the smell was very lacking.

Amber orange in color with a bit of cloudiness. A millimeter thin layer of foam rests on top. I've had this before but it's been awhile. Fantastic intense grapefruit like hop aroma. Best smelling IPA I know of. Pretty smooth mouthfeel with a bit of hop stickiness. Intense hop flavor is well balanced with a light malt backbone. Love this.
