Slight grapefruit notes. Bit of a carbonation afterbite. Very good overall.

looks fairly dark yellow/orange. Smells of pine with some citrus fruits like grapefruit and orange rind. Taste follows the nose well with a hit of bitterness up front followed by some piney notes then some citrusy notes. Overall a great classic ipa that I could drink everyday anytime . Great beer

I’ve finally developed a taste for IPA’s over the years, but still I’m pretty selective (definitely more of a stout guy). That being said, I must rank this as about the best IPA, and for that matter, one of the best quality beers in general, that I’ve had. Poured a nice goldish and orangish, with about a finger width head, that although most was gone in 5 minuets, remained a thin layer the duration, which laced nicely. Smell was definitely citrus and taste followed. Medium carbonation mouthfeel. Hoppy enough to be an IPA, but not so overwhelming that it takes the enjoyment away. I’ve heard this is a world class beer, I now see why. Good stuff!

Hands down my favorite beer, and in my favorite style, the West Coast IPA. Love this stuff. Pours golden/Amber in color, light white head, laces the glass well. Head retires into little clusters of foam typical of hoppy ales. Smells strongly of pine and grapefruit.
Mouthfeel is great, perfectly carbonated and goes down very smooth. Malt presence is there, bready with a light touch of sweetness, but not out front, typical of style.
Big hop forward taste, bitter citrus flavors dominate, but not enough to seem overwhelming or dry out the palate. Best West Coast IPA on the market IMO.

Smooth, easy to drink, very enjoyable feel. A very pretty cloudy amber, but nothing special to look at. Tasty for sure, but the real pleasure is how it feels to drink it.
