32 oz growler from a freshly tapped keg.
A: Aggressive side pour into a pint glass. Giant 3 finger, eggshell-white head. Slowly receding and creating a pillow-like cloud resting on the surface of the beer. The beer is a cloudy, light gold color about the color of straw. Carbonation is just right and bubbles range in size from foam to 3/8". Nice sticky lacing left on glass where head was and the head is retaining very well at about 1/4" along the side of the glass and a slight foam on the beer surface.
S: Strong fresh hop profile. Resiny, pine, citrus, grapefruit, malt, a light breadiness. This smells very fresh and clean like one could imagine if a beer was fresh from the shower using hops for soap. :)
T: Tastes even better than it smells and it smells very good. Crisp finish and nice bitteness lingering on the tongue along with some bite from the hops. Its inviting me to take another quaff.
M: Smooth and creamy followed by a crispness coming from the hops. Carbonation is fantastic. The finish is wonderfully smooth and slightly crisp.
O: This is a very well constructed beer with all the elements you expect from an IPA and an amazing smoothness that is atypical from many other IPAs which are biting. The flavor and smell are very well blended. Its a beer that invites you to take another mouthful. I like it a lot.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.
Lots o' recommendations for this from my local, so how could I say "No"? It pours a clear sunrise golden-amber topped by a finger or so of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit zest, light caramel-laden biscuit, mild pine resin, and a touch of flowers. The taste brings in more of the same, the grapefruit a touch stronger, and some cilantro peeking through the haze. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sticky, drying finish. Overall, a nice enough IPA, especially for a fresh hop deal, but nothing all that special, really.

22oz bomber with a date
look is yellow with some darker orange highlights, TONS OF SEDIMENT. smell is skunky and grassy but muted. there's also an odd musky scent that is off-putting. taste is heavy citrus/flowers/grass with a sweet malty but peppery finish.
