Pours a clear dark golden straw color with thick white head dissipating into bubbly lacing. Nose is mild hops and sweet malt. Taste follows with mild piney hops, more malt backbone and slight bitterness. This is classic west coast IPA ,balanced and delicious.Not too hoppy , not too much alcohol. Maybe the bar for which to judge all others.

Long-lasting, West Coast pine taste that doesn't quit. Simpler than the Plinys, but a classic single IPA.

Draft at Apex. Medium golden, kind of hazy. Small soft, creamy head. Aroma is soft hoop scents, taste erupts with big strong hoppy flavors, dry and tangy. Super well balanced.

Quite pithy and piney, with contrasting floral notes that provide balance. A classic west coast IPA enjoyed on draft. Glad I had the chance to try this.

In my amateur opinion, this is the IPA all other IPA’s should strive to be. I make it a point to buy this when I visit the brew pub so that I have it at home. I prefer it to Pliny the Elder and Pliny the Younger, easily my favorite beer.

It pours like a good golden hued IPA, it’s hop forward and smooth as hell. This one doesn’t disappoint.

This is a very nice IPA, with lots of character and of an insanely floral aroma and flavor profile. It pours amber with about a finger of foam. The aroma is floral with some mild notes of some unripe apple and pear. The taste is well balanced and features yet more flower notes in the aftertaste. Medium body and decent carbonation. A very nice example of this style.
