from a can found in a shop in Norman OK. Perfectly decent old school west-coast IPA, with plenty of piney and earthy hops, a little citrus edge, and some slightly sweet doughy and caramel malts. In a crowded field, this one doesn't stand out to me, but it isn't bad either.

A nice biting IPA, but with a touch of a sweet finish. Pours clear amber with a nice robust creamy head. Aroma is complex, sweet malt, honey, toffee, caramel, no sign of the hops that are to come. Taste comes in with a nice malt flavor, hops riding the wave on to the taste buds at the finish. Enjoyable throughout.

A- clear coppery color, thin head that dissipates kinda quickly, nice lacing left behind
S- malt, piney hops
T- mostly piney hops but well balanced
M- medium bodied
D- very good, I would drink it again. A good example of a west coast IPA from the Pacific Northwest.

Pours amber/copper/orange with a medium creamy head that leaves lots of film/spotting around the glass. Nose is a milder melon/pine than expected with a bit of earthy quality as well. Taste is rounded/malty up front with bitter hops building and overtaking. Mint at the finish. Overall a solid beer that is not in your face but remains interesting.
