A- Pretty white head on the pour. Pale orange in color.

S- Citrus orgasm on the nose.

T- Pretty mellow when it hits the palate with a balanced malt to hop ratio.

M- Clean on the finish, very drinkable.

O- This is a great beer. I could imagine serving this at a bar-b-que or a party. It seems to appeal to a lot of people and its not too overwhelming of an IPA. My wife also enjoys this one. For such a drinkable beer the 7% ABV is surprising and can sneak up on you!

This best part of this beer is its balance, followed closely by the flavors.

Grapefruit, citrus, some bubblegum, earthy spice and a solid malt backbone show why this beer is highly rated. A bit resinous for me, and for a single IPA, but I won't dock it too many points for that just b/c maybe it really is a dIPA.

With all that said, one glass is about all I can muster here. It ain't sessionable or quaffable, but it's darn fine. I'd almost like to have it with some spicy Indian food just to see how the sweetness holds up

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Light amber color, pure white head, about two fingers. Very clear
S: Smells like a subtle citrus bomb, if that makes any sense, first hit with citrus, left with earthy hops
T: Great citrus taste, fair malt taste, to be followed up by a clean bitterness
M: Acually tasted thin...which is too bad considering this is a supposed legend if IPAs. Don't get me wrong, it was quite tasty, but it left me thinking there was a bit of water in the glass before pouring. I need to try it against other IPAs side-by-side. Left my palate clean without overstaying its welcome.
