Poured from a cold bottle into a pint glass after sitting at room temperature for a few minutes. Excited about this one...had it a few times but never got around to reviewing it until now.
Appearance - About 4 fingers of head; brilliant lacing on the edge of the pint glass lasted throughout the beer; beautiful amber color.
Smell - Orange/citrus smell mixed with malt/grains; smell is very subdued.
Taste - Initially dry, hoppy, and slightly bitter; becomes smoother (but still highly carbonated) as you progress through the beer. Grainy, dry, and hoppy pretty much sums it up for this beer.
Mouthfeel - Carbonated but still palatable.
Overall - A slightly above-average IPA; not my favorite Left Hand but a nice English IPA. I'd drink it again but I probably wouldn't try too hard to find this one...
