S-nice subtle hop aroma, sweet and crisp
A-yellow color with off white head that dissipates soon after poured
M-nice light crisp feel, carbonation is on the lighter side
T-bitterness hits the tongue first then a mellow sweetness, followed by a lingering bitterness, definitely an easy coast IPA.
O-a nice IPA, give it a try, I'd say good middle range, sorry Victory I prefer Dirt Wolf

Full of pine and malt, with a very bitter finish. Odd, I know, but not too much citrus in the mix. Mouthfeel a little harsh, tho the malt comes thru nicely as it warms.
West coast thru and thru.

This is a very solid IPA, nice meld of hops and malts.

Appearance: Golden straw maybe a little bit of red hue going on. Head was large at first but then settled to a nice layer that remained.

Aroma: Nice floral, citrus fruit hop aroma. A bit of pine, but not too much.

Taste: This is one of the better IPA's I have had in a while. Nice combination of malts and hops. Bitter grapefruit and pine but combined well with the malt to make this a smooth and well made IPA.

Overall: For the price I would buy this one again. I honestly think this is a more drinkable beer than it's big brother Dirt Wolf. Victory makes some nice brews and this one has made the top of my list thus far from them.
