A: very hazy - almost murky; a dull burnt orange in color; 1 finger khaki head that receded to a thin collar; nice lacing;

S: quite malty; citrus and earthy also;

T: a little more hop character here than in the aroma, but this is not a hop forward beer; what hop presence there is
is mostly citrus; finish is mild to moderately bitter;

M: medium bodied' moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: I would have scored this higher if they called it an English IPA, but as a West Coast IPA, it's not that good;

From the 12 fl. oz. can. Sampled on August 10, 2015.

A medium amber heady pour with yellow highlights. Good lacing.

Floral, fruity, and pine hop notes with a decent caramel malt ester under it all.

The body tends to fall into the medium range and it is smooth.

The taste exhibits a more fruity character but there are still underlying caramel roasted malts in there. Some lingering bitterness.
