Pours a slightly hazy yellowish amber with one finger of thick white head. Tons of hop citrus hop aroma, just bright, sweet, juicy grapefruit. There's a touch of sweet malt in the taste, but it's more than overpowered by the sharp citric hop flavor. From beginning to end this one is just full of that classic American hop taste. Moderate carbonation and a slightly less than medium body give a very smooth mouthfeel that ends with a moderate bitterness and a nice dryness on the palate. The beer just screams classic American IPA, and does so very well.

Served from a 12oz bottle, bottled on date: 10/06/11 (4 months old). Poured aggressively into a pint glass.

A: Looks a light golden, almost blonde ale color, very cloudy. Lots of active carbonation bubbles coming up. Finger of white head, good retention.

S: Very floral, hoppy, pine, citrus, very aromatic.

T: Whew! Definitely an IPA. This IPA style is not my cup of tea really... or glass of beer rather, but hopheads should love it. Lots and lots of pine, citrus, higher IBUs, very hop forward in the start through the mid palate. Tries to balance a tad on the finish with a bit of malts, finishes a bit sweet. Doesn't leave that bitter burning pinesol feeling in the back of my sinuses after a sip like some IPAs of this style do, so that's a plus. Also the slightly higher ABV is well masked, I don't get much booze in the flavor.

M: Medium body, slightly on the watery side, light carbonation.

D: Drinkability is hard to measure with this one because it's such a niche style. Your mileage may vary. For me, it's drinkable, but I'm not a huge fan of big IBUs and piney flavors.

O: Overall, I'm not a big fan. It's one of those styles where you either love it or hate it, and I'm rating it here for what it is, not according to my personal tastes. I know it's a good beer for those who are into the IPA style, and it deserves at least a 4/5. Love it or hate it, it is what it is, and there isn't anything "bad" about this beer, it just depends on the palate.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance:This beers pours a wonderful golden color with a slight yellow hue. The head lingers wonderfully and gives it a classical pale ale type look with a nice white foam.
Smell: gives off a very strong nice centennial hop aroma with notes of bitterness and citrus. Strong hop smells linger.
Taste: Medium bodied with a decent alcohol presence up front. Finished quite smooth and also gives a citrusy and bitter feel on the pallet.
Mouth: Pretty dry with a bitter feel. The carbonation definitely isnt overwhelming like in some IPA's and sits well in the pallet.
Overall: Great beer. Gotta be in my top 5. All around the board you cant poke anything wrong with this beer. Very well balanced and not overwhelming for an IPA. Usually overpriced though...
