Bottle given to me as a gift.

poured into New Belgium snifter

smell and appearance were spot on. had been a little while since I had an IPA and this one looked and smelled like a winner. copper color, two finger head that left a little lacing on the glass.

smelled nice and hoppy, with a little citrus and pine. so far so good!

taste fell off the cliff. so thin, so little hops. what a disappointment. in a land full of west coast IPAs that knock it out of the park, this one just doesnt measure up

Hazy amber with one finger of off white head. Head gives up quite soon but leaves a dense curtain of fine bubble lacing.
Smell is floral hops with a light dose of fresh biscuit dough.
Taste is earthy fruity (pink grapefruit) bitter hops up front with plenty of bready rich malts. Quite malty for an IPA.
Mouthfeel is quite full bodied and the carbonation is just enough.
Overall a rich malty fresh hop American IPA.
FYI: Label says 65 IBU, website 80.
label says 5.9 abv, website says 6.5%.
Also says fresh Nugget and Cascade hops from Mission Bottom area North of Salem, Oregon.
Update: 09/13/2014. Label now says 85 IBU and 6.8% abv. Must be a work in progress. Hops are listed as Cascade and Columbus.
