A - Pours a deep golden color. Decent foamy white head. Adequate lacing.
S - Smells of fresh cut citrus and pine. Nose is not as bountiful or complex as other top-shelf IPAs but still a joy to sniff.
T & M - Lots of grapefruit, peach, and assorted citrus fruit. Hop bitterness is right where i like it for this style. The maltiness leaks through a bit more than other IPAs which makes the mouthfeel fall into the higher end of the moderate range.
Overall/Drinkability - Back when I first had this IPA, it made me believe in the style. It was a glimpse of hope in a sea of mediocrity. Since my first encounter with Loose Cannon, I've had others that surpass it in complexity and flavor, but it is a top shelf IPA for sure. It's a great go-to. I always seem to have this around on my IPA kicks.
