A- Out of the bottle, this beer pours golden yellow, white head lingers for only a short time
S- i cannot detect much in the way of aroma, more hop pine than malt
T- Nice bitter start and solid bitter finish, definite hits of tart grapefruit seem to dominate. I also get a tang (lactose) of sorts at the front
M- Carbonation helps with a peppery bite
O- Drinkable beer, I haven't had many West-Coast-Style beers, so perhaps I need more practice.

Best by date of Dec is notched on this one

A: poured into an IPA glass to a clear light gold topped by three fingers of dense slightly off white head with good retention and nice lacing
S: smells of citrus, pine and floral hops with a little caramel sweetness
T: taste is muted hops with whispers of citrus and pine with some slight caramel sweetness. swallow is a good blast of hops on the back end with some oily floral notes that linger for some time
M: Medium on the mouth with soft and slightly prickly carbonation with a refreshing finish
O: A little weak on the front but makes it up on the back. Could be better but it isn't terrible and the hop flavors are there.

I know other people want to compare it to a full ipa and with that in mind I would give it a around a 3.5. However if I review it for what I feel like it is... I don't want to say that it's a light tasting IPA as it has a full flavor just not the full bitterness one would come to expect with a west coast IPA. It has a (and I don't like fruit flavored beer) fruity impact of grapefruit. Not sweet or overly powerful just a hint of citrusy grapefruit along with a light touch of pine. It's an IPA you can drink more than two of and they still taste fresh.

Just my two cents... Spend them or don't ;D
