I am not a Boston Beer fan yet except for ALE and WINTER ALE which are great.

This is ok

A: Great head, color, lacing, pale, energetic. Color is a bit bland.
S: Enticing and different. Boston's idea of west coast seems a parody though. Perfumy, flowery, citrus oil with out the bite. But for mass producer there's plenty of aroma
T: Meh. A cereal base feels mass produced, and then it follows the funny floral aroma. Not alot of bitterness or bite. A slightly odd, metallic aftertaste.
MF: Medium to thin body without much body weight or thrill, not a lot in the finish.
Finishes a bit soapy when warm.

I found this average and would only purchase in a bodega if there was no Captain Laurence.

This is a terrific IPA. On a blind taste test, I'm fairly sure I would have thoughts with was Sierra Nevada or some other west coast IPA- let alone from SA. A very drinkable and flavorful beer with just the right balance of tangy hops and an earthly mellowness that makes this a really nice beer to share in a group of people.
