Pours out of a 22oz bottle, the beers appearance is a copper orange color with a decent amount of foam a top this decent brew. The aroma is a bit dank but the citrus aroma are a bit faint for a west coast IPA. The taste is surprising give the weak aroma, but the citrus lacking in the aroma is a bit more present in the taste. Also present in the taste are grassy notes, maltiniess, bitter hops, and a stong medium body backbone. Overall this is a good, above average IPA, with some good tast characteristics but missing a bit in the aroma and wow factors that separate good beers from great beers.

Appearance - Poured a deep coppery orange into a tulip glass, with a decent head.

Smell - Somewhat faint, not as fruity as other beers I've had but still recognizably citrusy.

Taste - The 77 IBUs and fresh hop/pine flavors really come through, more so than I expected with such a light odor. Quite pleasant overall.

Mouthfeel - Very smooth with light carbonation, almost too light. At first it tasted a little watery, but that wateriness is less noticeable as it warms up.

Overall - Very good beer, I'd buy it again in a heartbeat. Well balanced and overall a pleasant experience! An excellent example of a classic India Pale Ale!

A - Nice big white head, slow to leave, lots of cling. Bronze orange, a little tiny bit of red or brown in the mix for color.

S - Not much smell at all. Light hops come out, but so does kinda wet paper.

T - Fruity, nice hop mix. Malt is very light and hops are light, but a little stronger than the malt.

M - A little creamy, actually, good carbonation, balance finishes towards the hops.

D - Ok beer. Good to try. Just not a stand out, imo.
