look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
A - Poured smooth with a light fluffy white head that dissipated quickly, leaving a pretty, thin white surface. Big-time lacing on the inside of the glass.
S - Sweet and malty on the nose. I can detect a faint hop aroma and I'm now very curious about how that will show up on the tongue.
T - Hops hits first and hits hard. It's totally backed up by a sweetness that comes through much stronger in taste than in smell. I can't taste alcohol until it hits the back of the tongue. Aftertaste is bitter and lingering. It makes me want to take another sip to get at that maltiness.
M - Big carbonation, but this beer is light in the mouth. It almost has to be, considering the attention-getting taste. Very good.
D - I could have a few of these tonight. Not too heavy but quite substantial.
This beer is totally rewarding with every sip and very true to style. If you're an American IPA lover you owe this one a try.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a Sam Adams pint glass
Flows into the glass a beautiful crystal-clear gold with lots of carbonation. A stiff pour yields a massive head, very foamy with big bubbles. It condenses fairly fast and leaves a a lot of lacing.
The aroma is quite nice. I get citrus, pine, a bit of rising bread, orange peel, grass and a hint of onion.
This beer tastes great. Layers of hop flavors. Juicy citrus up front, some pine and a nice lingering and spicy bitterness. As it warms, a little bit of grassiness and even a hint of onion. There's also some malty sweetness hiding in the background.
The mouthfeel is light to medium with a bit of stickiness.
overall, a really good IPA that I wish I could obtain on a regular basis.
