a clean golden-copper with 2 fingers white head, nice retention and decent lacing. very floral scent, cascade piney hops, caramel, grapefruit. a slight piney flavor up front, lots of grapefruit-like citrus flavor, earthy bitterness in the finished mixed in with a sweet malt backbone. medium body, medium carbonation - a very refreshing and well balanced ipa. i have waited patiently for a full year to pull off a trade with this one. i've had way better ipa's in the meantime, but i am definitely glad i've gotten to try it.

Picked this up in California during my California to San Antonio trip. This survived the travels in my car then the flight from San Antonio to Chicago ( I was fortunate enough to have one back in California on tap too)

Anyway, I think I had this before; my first impression was that it was a "good" beer. It definitely did not knock my socks off, but I would drink it.

Smell-does not stick out for me...average; don't know if the trip messed with this, but I did a good job of trying to control for temperature changes

Appearance- this is probably the highlight for me. This is a very clean looking, amber shining beer, with a 1/2 in white head. and spotty lacing.

Overall, it is a very drinkable IPA, balanced and not a palate crusher.
