a clean golden yellow pour with 2 fingers of foamy white head, visible carbonation, nice lacing and great retention. kind of an OLD familiar smell.. getting a very reminiscent smell of miller high life... which is weird.. i guess it's malt heavy. definitely smelling pilsner malt, grass, bready yeast.. not an ipa smell at all, hmm...
a very subtle but weird taste.. bitter up front, grassy/floral tasting hops, a very malty yet bitter flavor overall, slightly sweet on the finish.
light-medium body , creamy but well carbonated so it goes down smooth and easy.
overall, i really like this one. it's a nice change in beer expectancy.

Kashmir IPA poured into a 3 Floyds tulip pint glass, consumed on 6/5/12. Bottled: 4/6/12

A- One finger white head with good retention. Crystal-clear golden body, most definitely filtered. Some spotty lacing. A decent crown hangs on through the end.

S- Out the neck: light hop aroma, some malt, kinda stale/skunky, not very appealing. Once poured, more of same. I'm not impressed. The hop aroma is just strange and barely existent.

T- Nice bitterness upfront. Some citrusy hops and pale malt. Not all that interesting. A kind of stale bitterness lingers in the aftertaste.

M- Medium-light bodied. Moderate carbonation.

O- This was the 2nd IPA I'd ever tried when I had it about 5 years ago. I was not a fan then, and now that I've grown to love IPAs, I'm afraid I'm still not a fan. There would've probably been a point that I would've enjoyed this say 2 or 3 years ago but at this point it falls short. WAY too many other IPAs I would choose over this.
