L: pale yellow, bubbly head, small carbonation

A: pine, sugar, citrus

F: carbonated, bitter, sweet, thin to medium

T: malt, honey, sweetness to start and pine, metallic, bitterness to finish. Also very flat and stale yet can indicates March fresh.

O: my 1st Griffin Claw, not sure how they won't World Beer Cup Gold Award in 2010 for best IPA, maybe 7 years ago they used different ingredients but this is nothing special and I'm an IPA guy and have to say this is horrible. Glad I bought just the one and definitely glad I never bought the Costco Variety pack of this.

A very easy drinking IPA. Good flavor and very light bitterness. Would be good on a hot summer day.

This IPA was pretty solid pouring golden with a nice 2" white head stuck around. Had 20 oz inpint glass. Smells of hops and fruit, citrus, tropical, that compliment the hops flavor nicely without oberpowing it. Feels great going do medium-light bodied. This lacks a flavor characteristic that sets it apart, but this is a decent, well-balanced IPA that I'd drink again.
