Pours a deep golden with a two-finger off-white head. Nice retention and lacing. Nice fruity aroma with sweet malt and grass. Strong hop flavors on the front of the tongue balanced by a strong malt backbone. Finishes dry with a lingering hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall an extremely well crafted and perfectly balanced west-coast IPA. Very quaffable!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Light amber hued with incredible clarity. Easily a inch thick of tightly woven white head. Brussels lacing. Incredibly enticing aroma of piney hops. On the front of the palate I get bitter piney hops. I get biscuity malt and then a more subtle pine like hop fade. The mouth is surprisingly light and smooth.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a light golden yellow with a thin white head. Smell is citrusy and piney with a hint of sweetness. Taste follows the nose for the most part. Tropical fruit comes through a bit more as well. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Carbonation is what you'd expect from an IPA. Overall this is a great west coast IPA. I kinda wish Alesmith sold 12oz bottles though. I'd imagine Alesmith would be much more popular if they did.
