look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass and paired with sushi.

A - Nice clear copper body, strong head maintained thanks to a well-crafted amount of carbonation.

S - Extremely hoppy. Which is to say piney and grapefruity in this case.

T - Like it more than I thought, expected to be hop-wearied by this one. It maintains a nice zesty grapefruit flavor throughout, can taste the hops but they mingle well and dont overpower.

M - Feels a bit hot from the alcohol presence, but it finishes dry and is smooth on the aftertaste. I can see why this is one of the most iconic West Coast IPAs...
