NOTE: I compare all other beers to Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale; there may be better out there, but many that are worse.
This gives a full 2 finger aromatic head that lasts.
The color is a hazy medium light amber.
There is plenty of aroma from malt as well as floral citrus/piney hops which seem like they will never end.
There is plenty of taste from hops which is a distinct citrus/pine.
Lots of citrus at the beginning of the palate changing to pine with a slight bitterness at the end. Flavor is full throughout the palate with a hint of malt which offers a smooth finish.
Overall, love the full, rich flavors, and aroma.

12oz bottle, served in a dimpled beer mug. Pours a slightly cloudy lighter copper body, one finger thick white head, good retention, bits of lacing. Smell is grapefruit and pine, caramel and a bit of toffee, a touch of honey. Light resin. Flavour is mildly resinous, light grapefruit, pine, fairly sweet with a bit of sweet caramel and honey admixture. Mild resinous bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium lighter bodied, good carbonation, slightly slick with a mild resinous bitterness on the backend. Overall, a decent readily available IPA with a good price point. Have ticked this one years ago but finally got around to reviewing it thanks to my dad picking up a six pack when I visited.
