I am no connoisseur but I love tasting beer and this was an exceptional taste. Very entertaining fragrances and just the right amount of bite and bitterness to be refreshing and keep it distinctive above the otherwise smooth and pleasant flavors. The "look" was darker than I expect from an IPA but it promised better flavor and delivered.

Clean and transparent yellow look, lots of head forms.
Definitely a 'west coast' malty smell, this for some reason turns me off... I've had too many underwhelming experiences once I notice this distinct aroma. wish I could know exactly what it is.
Still what was expected after the nose gave off the malty notes.
