A: A nice amber color a tad dark for an IPA. Not much head, but a good amount of lacing. Some resins throughout, but relatively clear.

S: Fairly unremarkable, with caramel dominating the hops. Smelled more like an amber than like an IPA.

T: A bit sweet for an IPA, with caramel competing with the hops for attention. Did taste a bit better than it smelled, however, with a smooth progression from caramel to citrus to pine. Bitter finish.

M: Medium level of carbonation, in my opinion a bit flat.

O: Overall, this beer is more drinkable than my review might suggest, although compared to other IPAs, it pales in comparison. It drinks more like an overhopped amber. It wasn't bad, it was just pretty dead for an IPA.

Purchased at the Whole Foods in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii. I picked this one up because I have never seen it in California.

Best by 1/4/12.

Pours a hazy copper color with a 3 inch puffy tan head that settles to a small cap. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, fruits, and citrus zest. Taste is of malt and citrus zest. There is a medium amount of bitterness that lingers aftre each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good IPA that has a nice balance between the malt and the hops.
