Poured from 22 oz bomber to pint glass, 4/20/11.
A - Cloudy dark orange with 1 finger head. Lacing is good, retention is not.
S - Smells great. Tons of citrus hops with a touch of earthy pine in the background. Just outstanding. Very little malt scent, which is how I like it.
T - Some bitterness and an assault of citrus upfront. The citrus mellows midway to a somewhat dry piny finish. Bitter orange peel lingers forever. Such a great example of the style.
M - Is good, but not smooth and creamy like Pliny or Sculpin. Medium body suits the beer well and the finish is very dry. Carbonation is medium low.
O - A great west coast IPA that may become a mainstay in my fridge. Good hopping without being overly sweet and a lovely, lingering finish. I'm happy that I live just a few minutes from the brewery.
