Just got a FRESH bottle from a friend that came back from Cali...
A: Just about the lightest hued IPA I've seen. Decent clarity, head and retention
S: Pine and apricot/citrus. Not hit you over the head strong but there and pleasing
T: Very refined balance of pine/citrus and drinkability. Honestly for a beer that rates a "100" I find it a bit over-rated - not to say it isn't a terrific beer which it certainly is and superbly crafted, but I didn't find it as distinctive as some other IIPA's I've had. Still an excellent excellent beer
M: Flawless finish and hop forward malt backbone
O: A superb IIPA, but not all that. Perhaps that's the nice thing about it - it isn't trying to hard to impress or make a statement, just a great example of a well-rendered brew.
