I really like this IPA. It's not the best I e ever had, but it's a good IPA that you can find most places. It has a good taste and smell to me and never disappoints when I pick some up.

L: brightly-polished orange-gold hued liquid... bit of a spitty foam lays atop... some crystal lace, but not a top-to-bottom draping

S: quite explosive scent of lemon, pineapple, and a hint of pine - actually looking forward to diving in... started to notice a little crystal malt as it went along, especially in the essence of the residue in the empty glass

T: unexpected toasty, almost graham-cracker malt up front, with a pungent, bitter citrusy spice on the back end... the pine and hop resins swell up in the mix midway through the sip, while the aftertaste shows some grain dust, SA's signature malt profile (which may be found in their BL, OF, and other amber beers) and a vaguely sweet green grass... nothing fuzzy or muddled in the taste here - quite refined all around, with some excellent bitterness, if not tremendous depth nor complexity to the hop flavor... can't forget that the finish is wonderfully dry, as an IPA should be

F: lightly-frayed silky smooth... again, very light, dry finish... I would say it's light-medium bodied, rather frothy in its mouthfeel... altogether wonderfully taut

O: I've seen this around for awhile now in bottles and on draft, and I guess it's no surprise it's lasted this long because it's honestly rather (surprisingly) good - one of SA's best, in fact... like some of Victory's IPAs, this beer benefits from a touch of German engineering - in this case, its clean and crisp execution and probably also from the German hops included... I could see getting a whole sixer of this if need be

APPEARANCE: Slightly hazy, red to amber, one finger of soapy, off white, quickly dissipating head that settles down to a ring. Leaves a mild lacing down the glass. Good carbonation when you rock the glass back and forth.
AROMA: A nice mix of pine, citrus, and sweet bready malt.
TASTE: Big pine in the forefront. Grapefruit, a nice balance from the malt, nice lingering, and building bitterness.
FEEL: Medium body, great carbonation, dry all the way through the sip.
OVERALL: Very nice IPA, especially for $8 a sixer.
