Canned local beer. The place just opened a few months ago.
A. Big head. Had to let it go down before pouring again even with a careful pour. Golden color, a little hazy
S. Piney smell, very small citrus hint as well
T. Taste reflects the nose. Excellent balance. I was going to favor it anyway since we hale from the same city but I am actually shocked by how good it is. Front is loaded with several distict bitter hop flavors.
M. Almost feels like nItrous. Very full mouthfeel.
O. This is delicious. Very drinkable. I will be buying several more 6packs

Appearance- deep, dark golden with a wonderful head out of the can , perfectly carbonated for a pint glass.
Nose- this brew gets it right from the start. Take a whiff- Bam!! Floral notes. Citrus. Pine (my favorite). I mean it smells like you just finished with the chainsaw! Outstanding, robust, in-your-face hops. Love it.
Taste- absolutely everything is there. The archetype of what I want in an IPA: solid backbone but not sweet or overpowering malt. I assume there is some medium crystal barley but nothing too dark. Certainly no biscuit or anything that doesn't belong in a great ipa. Hops. Serious hops. I would like to know the schedule on this one but seems a great deal of early hop additions as the bitter note is prominent. Finishes with some light citrus notes and slightly zesty.
Mouthfeel- just about perfect.
Overall- I really don't know what to say other than perfect . Absolutely nailed it , West Sixth. Although I haven't tried everything, I've spent a great deal of time on IPAs since I became sold on craft beer, and this on has it all. It should hold its own against anything out there. If you're a hop head then you will crave it. Fan-freaking-tastic!

D - a nice taster and very sessionable.
