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.
