A: light orange. Crystal clear. Medium head; thick foam.

S: mango. Pine. Mild aroma, but clean.

T: pine followed by malty, bready goodness. Bitter hangs on for a bit.

M: medium carbonation. Medium body.

O: decent IPA. Not stellar. Would be better if the bittering hops were different. A bit too much of a lingering funkiness. But I guess this is Haight/Ashbury.

On tap at the Toronado in San Francisco. Orange color, good head. Aroma was slightly floral and piney, not bad. Flavor was bitter and hoppy, citrus, not much dank though so I really didn't feel this was a true west coast style IPA. Yes it was hoppy but didn't have that certain something you get from say a Pliny or an Alpine. Still, a decent IPA and one I would probably buy a bomber or sixer of.
