I drank this beer out of a can at a local beer shoppe. The smell is a very strong, hoppy, leafy smell. It's a very original smell. The mouthfeel is very light, with a very light carbonation. The taste is pretty good. It has that typical bitter, hoppy IPA taste, with a bitter aftertaste. It leaves a chewy feeling in your mouth. Overall, a decent IPA, I would recommend this beer

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Dark amber/copper hue with a thick and steady head--looks like bread rising; lacing is great

S: Lots of citrus rind, grapefruit, pine, tea leaves, pineapple--this is every bit of hop awesomeness that you would want in an American IPA; some sweet bready malts but mostly just a hop explosion

T: Citrus and pine hop bitterness upfront but not quite the explosion experienced from the aroma; actually more balanced than expected with a slightly sweet bready malt presence coming through

F: Nice medium, sticky, and oily beer

O: Great IPA from Ska; so hop forward, refreshing, and awesome--why don't I drink this more often?
