First time reviewing this beer even though I've had it many times. Poured from a 12 oz bottle to a stout/porter glass.
A - 4.75 - Beer is a nice copper/amber color with about 2 fingers of off white thick head that thins down to a thick film of bubbles on top of the beer. Great lacing. Bottle is standard Green Flash Style.
S - 4.75 - A punch in the face of hops, perfect for a west coast IPA. Lots of grapefruit, citrus zest, pineapple, STRONG pine. The smell has a nice spiciness to it that reminds me of Pliny.
T - 4.75 - Strong piney hop bitterness, grapefruit, citrus zest. Nice spicy taste in there too, again kind of like Pliny the Elder.
M - 4.75 - light mouthfeel, bitter hop aftertaste sticks in your mouth. Alc completely hidden.
O - 4.75 - Great beer, definitely one of my favorite IPAs. it's just so hoppy and awesome.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Poured into 12oz Pint Glass
A - Pours a nice dark hazy orange, non see through. Finger width head dies down quick leaving almost none at all.
S - A lot of Citrus right off the bat...smelling notes of tangerine, pineapple, peach. Not really getting any malty notes at all.
T - Getting a lot of peach and orange and tads of lemon in the middle that are poking through. Has a clean and smooth finish and just a tad bitter, leaving the back of the tongue tingling.
M - very crisp feeling IPA. good carbonation and light to medium body.
Overall this is a great " west coast" style IPA. Tons of citrus and even a little bit of pine on the finish. For big hop heads who enjoy the citrusy, juicy IPA. Awesome beer.
