One of my favorite everyday beers, I try to keep this in my fridge all the time. On to the review.

Pours an amber color with a light, quickly disappearing head.

Smells like a piney, citrusy hop monster.

Taste just builds off the scent. A strong bite of pine and grapefruit, bitter but amazing, the bitterness hangs on lovingly in the finish.

Mouthfeel is nice and light, with good carbonation.

Overall it's a refreshing light beer with a bite, just the way I like it.

Pours into an oversize wine glass an almost dark yellow amber with a puffy off white head.
The scent is what it should be like nicely hopped IPA good stuff builds anticipation. The Lacing on the glass is just freaking incredible at this price point. Let it warm up just a bit (from suprer market temps) and you will experience an excellent American IPA.

another excellent IPA - one I purchase and savor over other great IPA's. Bold and full of flavor . Well balanced; bitter, very drinkable, very tasty hops. Easy to get- reasonably priced. Can not think of any other IPA out there that is consistently great! A 'world class' IPA from California Overall, an extremely well made beer.
