Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best by" date 2-5-16.

APPEARANCE: pours a beautiful copper color with more than one-finger off-white head that slowly dissipated until a thin, unbroken layer of small bubbles remained, there are larger bits floating about, medium carbonation.

SMELL: caramel, bread and flowers, there is also a nice grapefruit citrus note.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet caramel and bread then a piney, grapefruit citrus hop blast.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a very good West Coast IPA, lots of citrus hops, very pleasant to the nose, I would buy this again and recommend to anyone who enjoys the style.

This is a great IPA! The first IPA I ever tried and after all these years I still find myself drinking this and basing other IPA's on this beer.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. This is a great IPA, lots of lemony hop but not overpowering. Nice color, smell and taste with no aftertaste. I'll be looking for this again.

Very nice IPA. There's a little bit of pine, but not enough to make it that type of IPA (you know the type). It doesn't stand out too much, but it's a solid base IPA.
