look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A- Poured into a pint glass. Pours a nice deep golden hazy straw color. Nice off white inch head that took a little while to melt away leaving nice sticky lacing on the sides. Wow..this is how a beer should look!
S- Nice fruity (citrus and lemon) hop smell along with a piney smell as well. This seems to be the trademark with these west coast beers. I like this smell of course.
T- Very nice upfront kick with the hops. Leaves a nice oily coating on the tounge. This is just like a typical west coast IPA. Very good. Nice malt background as it goes down the throat. I like the hop after taste that lingers around way after you finish taking a sip.
M- Very crisp and refreshing. A little on the medium to light side which makes it a keeper in my book. Nice carbination and sticks to the palate as you drink it.
D- Like pretty much every west coast beer I have tasted I would drink the crap out of this if like usual I could get it around here. Thank god I have FFF around here. That kind of makes up for it.
