Pours a clear straw yellow/orange with a two finger head. Smells of floral piney hops with a touch of sweetness. Taste is well balanced and hits upfront with the bite of the sweet piney hops and a touch of citrus lemon. There's a spice quality of something like lemon-grass that adds a small bite to the flavour. A touch of the nutty malt comes through on the end although incredibly covered by the hop notes. Mouthfeel is pretty stellar with its upfront bite and clean chewy character that keeps it drinkable.

Overall Blind Pig is a fantastic example of a west coast ipa. It may be a bit hard to find but it's worth the trouble.

Appearance: Very clear, golden amber appearance, with 3/4 finger, off-white head.

Smell: Clean, malty, hoppy, grassy.

Taste: Strong roasted malty start, without a lot of caramel, but is balanced well by good hop finish. Does a good job of hiding its alcohol.

Mouth: Medium body, lightly oily, good carbonation.

Overall: One of my favorite beers. Strong malt and hops, without the piney flavor of Pliny.
