Poured from a 12oz bottle into a IPA glass.
Look- golden, great head retention, good lacing.
Smell- citrus, slightly boozy, slight pine notes.
Taste- piney, somewhat underwhelming flavor.
Feel- light body, average carbonation.
Overall- solid beer, easy drinking, flavor not very vibrant.

On tap at BWI. Looks like a classic West coast IPA. Clear golden-amber color with a fleeting white head that left splotchy laces in the glass. Aroma was muted. Trace amounts of pine, grapefruit, and a touch of caramel malt. Assertive bitterness with somewhat muddled hop flavors that were hard to discern. Mainly pine but other elements were there. Overall average.

Not what I expect in an IPA, it had a nice head but an amber color like a lager. Tropical and fruity notes it reminded me of a saisson.

Medium gold with a decent head with medium-large bubbles. Nose is not strong, certainly more subtle than the taste but yields citrus and tropical hops. Delicious fruitiness with a tropical feel including pink grapefruit and marmalade. Medium bitterness. Medium body.
