Nice golden color and good carbonation. Not much head and hoppy aroma. Not overly hoppy tasting as it dissipates quickly and hangs on the tongue. Easy drinking beer and a little better than some others I have tried recently. Think I'll have another. Cheers.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A hazy honey golden color with a frothy 1 finger head with lace that sticks around for awhile.

Aromas of fresh pine, grass, slight herbal aromas, and faint garlic and onion due to a little past its date on this one.

The flavors come out very fresh, with pine and herbal notes fighting for center stage. The herbal notes ultimately win out. A finish of pine and onion.

Feel is crisp and clean, with slight resinous quality.

Overall, this is a pretty solid IPA that I'd recommend to anyone. Coop definitely gets their IPA's right.

Clear dark gold with three fat fingers of dense off-white head that slowly recede to leave soapy lacing.

Pine, honey and some light peppery spice in he nose. A hint of pineapple, too.

Dull pine up front in the taste, heavy bready malt mid-palate, and a bitter, peppery aftertaste. A touch of cardboard at three-and-a-half weeks knocks it back a bit.

Heavy bodied with a prickly mouthfeel. A little on the flat side.

Overall, a nice West Coast example. 03/01/17 canning date.

Per someone's suggestion below, this is the lower ibu, higher Abv version. Hopcentric but not tongue unraveling. Poured from a can, murky goldenrod, smells of rainy pine woods, tastes of grapefruit. Light and refreshing mouthfeel, I'm asking this beer to take the edge off the day. It's delivering.

First had in Norman, Okla., on draft into tumbler, and later poured from 12-oz. can, purchased in Okla., stamped "09/14/2016," into tulip. This is an excellent hop-forward west coast-style IPA.

On tap into a shaker, this was probably the best ipa I had in OK...it was totally solid and I'd be happy to drink it again, though it was well short of amazing. The hop bill brings a nice mix of fresh pine needles without the resin and some light bright citrus. A little dry on the end, but not too much, and a lively mouthful.
