Poured a rich amber color with little head.

Smells definitely like a west coast IPA: pine and dankness

The one stand out on this beer was the malt character kind of biscuity and sweet. Good piney/resiny taste with slightly dry finish. Well done green flash!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Nice golden brown color, good white head, leaves great lacing

Smell: Full of pine, resin, citrus, and floral hops

Taste: Pine and resin hops are up front and in your face. They make no apologies. But, if you can make it through that, you'll notice some more delicate hop tones in there as well, next you get to citrus. Then, floral hops come through. There is a nice malt backbone in there to stand up to the massive hops

Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation

Overall: This brew is excellent. A top rated beer for sure. Gladly will pick up again as long as it is on the fresh side. This has a best by date of 7/30/14, so I'm assuming that means this is 2 months old.
