Many thanks to beertunes - nbs bif#2
Good looking beer. Big head that grows the unbelieveable carbonation action coming from the bottom of the glass. Easy to see 'cuz the golden liquid is very clear. Clingy, sticky lacing.
Nice fresh fruit and grass hop aroma. Smells very west coast hop like.
Strong and firm bitterness that starts early and ends at some time in the distant future. Holds back enough though and is not excessive. Not quite as sweet as advertised on the can but apparent malt flavor that solidifies the overall drink. Hop flavors are more complex than the aroma, less fruity but interesting and pleasing.
Not as fully carbonate as I expected considering the appearance. Moderate feel. No problems here.
A good and solid drink.

22oz bomber served in a pint glass. Pours an deep orange hue with a thick white head. Lots of hop character in this beer. A very finely done west coast style IPA.

Pours orange/copper
Smell is amazing, fresh fruit and hops
Taste is a little less fruit than the nose indicates, and a ton of pine. Hoppy, but not very bitter.
Feel is slightly less carbanated than other peer IPAs in the region. Althoug that, helped me focus on the flavors, it works. Finish is smooth and dry.
Overall this is a quaility IPA you can get into. Easy to down a couple and stay interested. I would have this on hand if I lived in the PNW.

22oz : SN IPA Glass

Clear, brassy orange with a thick, foamy white head.

Big juicy, resinous hop notes. Light citrus notes, some pale, malt backing.

Medium+ body, mild foamy carbonation.

A decent IPA. Enjoyable at the time, but nothing particularly memorable in the big picture.

Pours a light and slightly hazy gold color with a nice bright white head.

Aromas are very pleasant. Notes of pine needles, some really bright citrus, and prominent notes of mostly oranges and peaches.

Taste is similar to the nose, but it doesn't translate quite as well as I hoped. Crisp and dry up front, light cracker and creamy sweetness. Finish is bitter, with pine, orange zest, and some general citrus notes.

Mouthfeel is full, good body, and nice snappy carbonation.

Overall, a solid IPA. Very drinkable and enjoyable. But like I said, I wish the taste was up to par with the excellent aromas.
