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.
