Poured from 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass.

A: Pours a Medium orange/ amber with a 1 inch off-white head. Slight haze in the color with a few small bubbles rising to the top. Layer of foam remains.
S: Piney, deep floral notes. Perfumy with hints of wild berry.
T: Dank. A sharp hoppyness strikes your tongue right off the bat. Pungent earthiness. Hints of orange in the middle. The malts are overshadowed by the hops in my opinion. Slight aftertaste.
M: Medium feel. Hop oils stick around in your mouth a little longer than I would like.
O: A very good IPA. Generously hopped and full of flavor.

I'm earmarking this beer as one to get the next time I see it on a menu or something, because at the time I drank it, I hated IPAs. Now, I think any positivity I have toward it wouldn't be based on its reputation, it'd be because I actually like the style now and think this would be great.

Such a classic American IPA, a personal go-to. Perfect balance of hops to malt, not too sweet, not too bitter.
