Despite this being at just about every bar and bottle shop I've ever been to, this is the first time I will drink this beer. Poured into a snifter.
3.0 A: Opaque orange brown color. Just one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is well below average and sparse nonuniform bit of lacing are left.
3.5 S: Not as "west coast" as I was expecting, though still quite appealing. Hop aroma in the form of citrus (orange), pine, and flowers. Good pungency to it. Malts offer a touch of toffee and, when combined with the yeast, a light breadiness, though overall quite clean.
3.5 T: Again, good enough, but the hops don't pop as much as the namesake suggests. Hops are piney foremost and citrusy with orange being most obvious. Might be a touch of mango in there as well. Moderate bitterness. Malts give a touch of caramel and a touch more breadiness.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A touch chewy from the yeast. Moderately creamy and smooth.
3.5 D: It's good, but it doesn't really impress me that much. This beer seems to have outlived it's reputation.
