Poured from a 12 oz. brown botte.
Pours a clear pale straw yellow, (no amber here) with a pure white head that has decent retention and superior side glass lace.
AROMA: Balanced out of the gate! Citrus, grapefruit and pine nut hoppiness and some lightly breaded malts.
TASTE: Yum! Citrus and pine resin, some orange and bread malts are all there.
Moderate to heavy mouthfeel.
Dry at the finish. This was to my liking. A good one!

I picked this brew up in a 12 pack of mixed cans. The beer is a hazy yellow-gold color with a wonderfully stable white head. The aroma is loaded with juicy, citrusy hops...some herbal notes as well. For the taste, there is pale malt in the front, followed by a taut bitterness. Full in flavor and strong in flavor. Satisfying mouthfeel.

Pours out to form a thick off white colored head. Beer is golden with hints of orange.
Smell is of orange & grapefruit along with very dank and earthy notes to back it up. Smells like it has a nice malt backbone as well.
Taste is citrus along with the earthy notes which are almost like floral. Does has a nice malt backbone.
Avery hasn't disappointed me in a beer by them yet. This one doesn't either. (A)Very solid IPA.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a hazy sunny body with a hint of orange, a firm pour produces 1 finer head of white froth with good retention and very nice lacing. Strong nose orange peel, pineapple, sweet-tarts. Drinks a bit milder than it smells, notes or orange, tobacco, solidly bittering throughout, touch of alcohol warming. Very drinkable although it just misses finishing medicinal. Mouth as expected with an IPA, slightly slick and medium bodied, lightly carbonated,

Poured from a 12 oz CAN into a pub glass

Pours an excellent clear amber color with a spectacular, three-finger, rocky, foamy almost pure-white head with great staying power. Outstanding-looking beer.

The aroma is well balanced, with a solid malt foundation balanced with a ruby-red grapefruit tartness and a hint of piney goodness. Hoppy, but in a fresh balanced way. The aroma is rather muted, but well done.

The flavor is also a great study in balance and nuance. The backbone is malt, not bitterness, but the hops arrive as solid, not aggressive, and juicy, not piney.

The mouthfeel is solid but maybe a shade disappointing compared to some other aspects of the brew--considering how spectacular the head and retention were, the carbonation might be just a shade lacking. Still, it finishes nice and crisp.

Overall, this is a well-balanced IPA. Hop heads will revile it as too mild, but it's the way an IPA really should be--hoppy without trying to register triple digits on the IBU scale.

L: Pours a slightly Hazy copper gold color with a medium creamy head that leaves a inch on top and lacing all around the glass.

S: Some grapefruit, and orange, a nice pine and earthy hop note, with sweet light malt.

T: Sweet orange and grapefruit, a strong piney bitterness and some dank hops, balanced our by a sweet malt.

F: Medium body some prickly carbonation but goes down smooth.

O: This is an old school west coast ipa that is very drinkable.
