Pour to pint glass. Golden color with fluffy 1/2 inch head leaving nice ring of lacing after a minute. Nose is fruity , grapefruit and something else herbal, verey pleasing.
Taste follows nose well with fruity bite of hops with sweet malt behind. Nice balance.
Mouthfeel is medium with creaminess , very easy drinking with a little fizz.
Overall a solid IPA , just what you expect from left coast

Canned on 7/31/12. Half can to a snifter to get the look, the rest enjoyed out of the can

Pours a deep orange and gold with little transparency. Solid finger of foam with above average retention. Very nice and sticky lacing, only real fault is how cloudy it is, probably a result of it's age. Aroma of strong hop and rigid malt. Some citrusy and pine notes shine trough with orange and grapefruit zest with a hint of alcohol. Taste follows the nose well, lots of hops with a malt that definitely is a work of age. Citrus shines through and everything still melds nicely though. Mouth is good, crisp and medium body. Very smooth and creamy, this stuff goes down tremendously. Overall this is a great beer, I'd love to try it fresh

A: A hazy amber color. Two plus fingers of off white head. Good retention and lacing.

S: Pine, biscuit, and sweet citrus.

T: Sort of follows the nose. Also tasting hints of pineapple. This one is pretty malty, but also a little bitter.

M: Medium body with a medium low carbonation.

O: A solid IPA. Nice sweet fruit flavor. The overly sweet and bitter components are a slight turn off.

A: Pours a hazy amber with a half inch pillow of dense white foam. The head dissipates to a thin film in a few minutes, leaving good lacing.

S: Sweet citrus, especially orange and grapefruit. Smells like a west coast IPA.

T: Sweet to start moving quickly into hops through the mid palate and finish, though the sweetness remains and provides some balance. Relatively strong citrus notes throughout, especially grapefruit on the finish. Pretty nice.

M: Medium to full body, medium carbonation.

Overall, a solid IPA and a good option in canned 6-pack form. I'll probably buy this again.
