Coppery amber with light haze. Frothy head turned thinner as the foam fell. Lacing is ok.
Cascade hopping with a touch more north of the floral. Mild pale malts and a lighter hoppiness with a familiar round of citric hops and pith notes.
Upfront leafy Cascade. Not IPA hoppy, per se. More like a decent pale ale with a C hop showcase. Tangerine, grapefruit pith, and floral notes. Rather fresh in its freshness, just tamed. Crackery malts have a lot of sway here. Even some toast doesn't go unnoticed.
Easy to drink. Easy to finish. Lighter in body. Carbonation gets to show off a little, even though it's hardly intense. Decent.
Decent little stab here. Just not a whole lot to impress.

Perfectly balanced IPA. seems to go down like water despite a commendable hop-explosion. THe carbonation is absolutely perfect. It's not over-bearing in any way.. not big.. poundable! Dry, but not TOO dry. Nice stab if I must say so myself. PUlled up the BA score prior to 'leaving the isle', but it was the only one I searched and I said to myself "if it sucks but it's scored 83 then so be it.besides nice design work on the label right?:)?.. but I think that may be a tad under-scored BA.. maybe 84..possibly even 85/100 for me.. solid brew.. Sierra has a contender on the shelf(for now, but who knows how long,.. hard to find good/accessible-as-in-local-grocer IPA's). Had never heard of this, and I've drank my share of beers. I make my own all grain too, and this IPA is light on abv bu still tastes great and has a great bod... talk about having you rcake and eating it too. nice beer. I mean it's no Commodore Perry or anything, and not even as good as a local, fairly accessible but no less expensive draft of Terminal Brewings' Magnum PA(although this isn'tnecessarily overpriced - paid 8.49+tax),.. but it's darn tootin' close to being as good as those super-ipa's. really solid. the label says "just drink it"... love it.. and the beers drinkability speaks to that.
