Clear golden body with a dense white head, copious lacing. Aromas of biscuit, malt, a hint of pine. Balance of malt / hops with moderate bitterness. Mediocre.

Poured with a nice golden hue typical of the style with a slight head of foam. First taste revealed a generous amount of hops and a nice malt backbone, a nice balance. The 6.9% abv was well-hidden and actually went extremely well with the fish & chips I was enjoying. Truth be told, I selected this because it was a "west coast" IPA that I hadn't heard of and it is one of my goals to try them all! I'll have this again should I come across it!
