This beer was the reason that I recently became an IPA fan, and in fact the reason I recently joined beer advocate. I had it on draft at a bar in Beverly Hills and felt it was the greatest beer I had ever tasted at the time. An enlightening experience. However, returning to it a few times in the form of bottle poured into a pint glass, I still find it to be an immensely enjoyable experience but not a stand out as IPAs go. It has that perfect balance of hoppy bitterness with citrus fruit and a nice malt backbone, and the bitterness doesn't linger too much on departure. A very well executed and balanced IPA. I personally like those flavors and hops crammed in in a bit more concentrated form.

A-Orange Amber with an off white head
S-I get more malt than hops. Sweet aroma, with a west coast hop profile, most likely Columbus
M-Resinous mouthfeel with carbonation medium high
T-Bitter up front, with centennial hops predominating my palate. Malt is also at the forefront with a crystal base.
O-A decent IPA that is more of an English IPA, with malt forward and crystal characteristics

Pours two fingers of head on a clear dark straw to red body.
The aroma is dark fruits.
The taste is malty sweet balanced with some pine and grapefruit bitter. Tends malty.
The texture is softer.
Really enjoyable.

Copper color, 1/6" head, almost no head on it, really falls off quickly. Some hops, enjoyable.

Another wave of hops, hits deep, substantial c hop presence, bitterness. Dry pale malt. A little bit of alcohol in the mouthfeel, that's ok, tempered with the bitterness and hops. Nothing fancy or exotic here, its a well hopped, low malt ipa.

This is a good looking beer, its kind of like a pinkish red with a fluffy white head. Perfectly clear for an unfiltered beer. Its not a world class IPA, I wasn't a huge fan. Pretty one note with the hop character and that's all there really is to the beer. The malt doesn't really balance. Its not terrible but I doubt I'll get it again.
