Damn Gina, i think this is my favorite IPA. I drink it regularly but just recently having it again and though i'd review it.
A tangerine honey color slightly, slightly turbid, fills my glass with a good finger of ivory colored foamy lacing. The aromas are quite crisp and very aromatic with a wall of orange blossoms and fragrant citrus... as if someone just peeled a pink grapefruit and sprinkled it all around.
The flavors hit the classic IPA on the money... actually i should say, this IPA sets the standard. True mountain pine and ripe citrus peels mingle like they're at happy hour. A true melding of delicious flavor with light toast bread mixed in. As you quaff this treat, you know you are drinking an IPA and one that isnt subtle nor pretends to be anything else. Actually, the taste screams West Coast IPA.
Very nicely carbonated and rather clean and oh so easy to drink. My fridge will always have several bottles of this!!! Yours should too!

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.
