Good copper color, nice head, laces the glass. Not as bitter as I like but great flavor, smooth. One of the better non west coast ipas I have tried so far.

Presentation: 12 oz. bottle into a nonic.
*Bottle lists ABV @ 6.8% (currently listed @ 7% here)

A- Light amber/golden and clear. ~2 fingers of white head, which fades slowly to a thin cap. Nice lacing.

S- Juicy mango/citrus/pineapple/pine hops...tropical fruit sweetness....

T- Mango/pineapple sweetness along with resinous piny bitterness. Delicious.

M- Moderate to slightly high carbonation with a medium feel.

O- Outstanding. What's not to like? I wanna' give out all 5's, but I'm being absurdly optimistic (i.e.- obscenely greedy) and holding out hope there's actually a better IPA out there somewhere....

Future outlook: This is one of (the?) best "single" IPA's I've ever had. Bravo. And as a bonus, a "local" brew....very glad to have grabbed a few sixers of this and not just a single...I see many more of these in my future.
