Appearance - Excellent copper color, with a nice finger-width of white foam. Nice lacing too.

Smell - Excellent hoppy aroma.

Taste - Hops, pine, citrus. Exactly what an IPA should taste like.

Mouthfeel - Full, creamy, effervescent. Pretty damn good.

Overall - A better, bitter version of Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale. A very solid IPA.
