4.41/5 rDev +3.8%
A: Very clear amber/orange topaz colored with a nice looking cakey slightly orange tinted head.
S: Aroma is lightly sweet with butterscotch and toasty bread malt, and a classic mix of hop aromas like centennial, cascade, amarillo, and others with peachy-melon and tropical fruitness. Crisp, clean, and well balanced.
T: Flavors are very likable. Nice simple, rich malt flavors of toffee, butterscotch, fresh bready grains, and fruity, spicy, brisk and piney hops all over. The fruitiness increases as it warms with a nice dry, lengthy, hoppy bitter finish.
M: Right on... Slick, creamy, fine, fully dispersed carbonation bubbles in all encompassing goodness. Dry and lip smacky.
O: A very nice IPA. You can tell this recipe has been honed. Balanced, hoppy, and fun. Classic west coast style...

Great complexity of flavors for an IPA, with lots of citrus and fruit notes accompanied by hop-appropriate herbal and spice notes. The aroma is fantastic and fresh even out of this older bottle. This beer is definitely one that lives up to the hype. It's a bit harder to find and a bit more expensive than I would like but I think it rests in the top 5% of the crowded IPA landscape and thus the elite pricing is deserved.
