Notes / Commercial Description:
What makes a great leader? First of all a perfectly balanced blend of qualities; the ability to stand out - be authoritative without overpowering. Show courage and endurance - you will lead the way and set standards. Very important; be appealing and refreshing to the people. This stereotypical portrait applies whether referring to politics, religion or maybe even this outstanding IPA.

16 oz can poured into a Duvel tulip. Batch #29 on bottom of can.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a finger of foam. Nice carbonation. Aroma has a nice grassy hoppiness. Appears thin bodied.

First sip is nicely hoppy and thin bodied. Hop bitterness is strong but not overwhelming. Very drinkable with very little residual sweetness. A touch out of balance on the hoppy side, but refreshing nonetheless

decent IPA, and I like the 16 oz cans

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick foamy head. Head retention is good. Lacing is excellent. A dank aroma with some grassy hops. Maybe some lemon. More of an earthy taste. There is an aggressive, dank, grassy hop with some grapefruit (maybe lemon) at the end.. Very astringent. Lighter bodied, though, with moderate carbonation. I do prefer the West Coast Style better.
