This beer seems in the West Coast vein, but lacks the depth of the better of those beers. The pour has a nice sustaining head, maybe a slight bit darker than pale, but not outrageously do.

I had trouble with the nose at the bar, not sure if that's the environment or the beer. Strangely with a swirl I get bubblegum more than anything, and that is not representative if the taste at all, so I'll go with a mediocre rating by default.

The taste is a mix mostly grapefruit in front, pine quickly taking over I back bitter-forward IPA. I get a generic grain underneath, and the carbonation adds some feel to what seems otherwise single-dimensional beer.

I gave this some higher ratings on the fact that, for and IPA, it does present an unmistakeable hop profile. It isn't at all a session IPA in a mask, either. It's a fairly decent representation of a very (and solely) hoppy beer, which just doesn't impress me given the IPA choices out there.
