Figured it was time to put a review up of one of my ol standby ipa's I drink as long as its fresh.
Appearance: Has a nice hazy,orange color to it. Pure white,fluffy cap to it.
Smell: Smell mostly is of oranges and a light citrus,tropical smell to it. Has a nice little biscuit smell in the background that lets you know there is some malt to this.
Taste: This is one of my standby's for the reason of how easy it is to drink. Nice amount of bitterness followed by a some malt to balance it out. Definitely has enough malt in it where its not super bitter like one of its local counter parts--Stone ipa.
Mouthfeel: Nice thin mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation. The bottle conditioning always seems to keep the right amount of carbonation to this beer-- never strays from this.
Overall: This is a classic IPA and one of my favorite local ipa's from good old Cali. Cali will always be king of the IPA and my eyes. I used to think the midwest put out great IPA's but aside from my favorite brewery -Three Floyds I think Cali has it all over everywhere else in the US in spades when it comes to ipa's. When its hot out this beer goes down like water. Perfect balance to it. When you get this beer fresh its awesome!

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and caramel malt. Body is full and tangy. Citrusy and piney hops, alcohol, caramel and bready malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long, dry, and grapefruity. Excellent brew.
