4.28/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

510ml bottle poured into tulip 8/3/13

A clear golden yellow with a few bubbles feeding a short lived soapy two finger foam that leaves no lace, looks pretty basic

S grapefruit, peaches, sweet orange, pineapple, tangerine and mango make for a great tropical nose, faint pine and a floral aspect that works well for it, smells great

T more pine then the nose and the tropical notes are toned down ever so slightly, just a little hard toffee and some rind opposed to the flesh I was smelling

M more bubbles then I could see in the glass and a mellow bitter bite with a lingering finish of tropical rind, just a little grit after the fact

O highly drinkable and I found myself trying to take smaller sips so I could savor it for more then 5 minuets, it looks basic but no complaints elsewhere

I love my customers some days because I never would've dreamed I'd be randomly drinking one of my top wants today, cheers Ian for the random act of kindness

4.21/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Poured a darker shade of gold, almost amber. Had a very small head that was gone within minutes.

Aroma: Had a very hoppy aroma which was very pleasant. The hops gave off nice aromas of both citrus and pine.

Taste: The flavor was what you would expect from a west coast style IPA, full of citrus notes and some good hop bitterness that lingered a bit on the tongue. A nice subtle malt backbone added to flavor of this delicious IPA.

Mouthfeel: Nice full-bodied beer that had a nice amount to of hop bitterness lingering on the tongue. Had a nice dry and bitter finish.

Overall: A great example of a west coast style IPA. Loved the citrus and pine aromas as well as the citrus and malt backbone in the taste. Easy drinking IPA as it does not have an overwhelming amount of hop bitterness but enough to taste and appreciate the hops. Very good brew.

Serving type: on-tap
