(Bottled 02/07, poured into a tulip)
My first solid 5, and it's warranted. not only is this beer devoid of any significant flaw, it is the epitome of the West Coast Double IPA, a standard that hundreds of other breweries clearly aspire to (many fall well short) and a beer I can drink whenever, wherever (if only it were more readily available). Pours a gorgeous orange with a thick white cap and tons of lacing. Smells like a tropical citrus bonanza with plenty of pine. Pine is even more present in the taste. Drinkability is off the charts. I am beatng a dead horse with this review. Easily my favorite IPA, confirmed after having hundreds of IPAs and re-tasting this beer (fresh!) twice.
