Standard pint. Pours with a 1 finger high, barely off-white, creamy head. The beer itself is a crystal clear, honey-orange color. The head doesn't last long at all and lacing is little to none.

Not extremely hoppy but up there, with lots of citrus (lemon and orange mixed), grapefruit, grassy, and zesty hops, noticeable malt and biscuit behind the hops, also some caramel malt and some malt/candy sweetness.

Taste is sweet from the more balanced malt bill. The hops hit with plenty of nice tart citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, grassy and bitter. The malt balances things out well with malty biscuit and a bit of a doughy taste.

The consistency is silky, the carbonation is about medium, body is light-medium, and the finish is just a bit long and dry.

Overall this is not quite my "type" of IPA, but still a good one and worth trying at least. Certainly good for those who like a more balanced IPA. And as far as balanced IPAs go, this one is better than most that I've had.

A= Bright golden orange, pour from can into a pilsner glass.

S= Lemon peel, creamy citrus. Right how an IPA should smell.

T= Hops were mellow, drinkable but had a metallic taster to it that I assume maybe from being in a can. Good IBU's.

M= Carbonation was spot on for this beer.

O= I would buy this beer again. I got it in San Francisco while visiting my brother in Dublin, CA. Came in a nice 6 pack. Drank 2 and split with my younger brother and packed 2 in my suitcase to fly home with for my other brother.

This beer was served out of a 12oz. can dispensed into a glass....

Presentation - Awesome artwork on the can, very eye-catching.

Appearance - Pours out a slight hazy orangish-copper color with a nice 2 finger white head that is airy and sticks around for a bit before dissipating into a froathy covering. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Good carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass.

Smell - Smells of citrus hops right of the bat with definite grapefruit and orange tones, slight hints of sweet pineapple as well.

Taste - Definite citrusy grapefruit hop flavor followed by a piney hop bitterness. A light sweet malt flavor is evident throughout.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Very smooth from start to finish.

Drinkability - Very flavorful and drinkable. A smooth and refreshing brew.

A worthy west coast IPA even if its not the best IPA I have ever had. Def worth a try.
