16 oz. pour into a tumbler

A- Semi hazy dark brass. Head, white, retains at 1/4" With some decent lacing.

S- Nice caramel base, grapefruit, and pineapple

T- Smooth and sweet, juicy. Not too bitter. Citrus, maybe some pineapple.

M- Really smooth. Crisp. Bitterness is mild. Yum.

O- Very great. Smooth, and bitterness isn't the big player. My kind of IPA.

Formed a nice creamy head in pint bitters glass, kept lacing and head to the bottom. Seemed to get better as the glass emptied, aroma not great from the start but much better with some warming. Mouthfeel and aftertaste the winner for me, not too much carbination. Overall a wonderful IPA that could, for my taste, also be a session beer. Definitely wanted another after the first!

Bomber poured into willi glass. This is one awesome IPA. A golden orange with just a very slight haze and an ample white head that sticks around and leaves nice lace on the glass. Big hoppy aroma...pine, resin, citrus and some tropical fruit. Tastes amazing..crisp and refreshing with.nicely balanced hops and malty sweetness. A perfect example of a west coast IPA. This one is now very close to the top of my list.
