Tasted on January 18, 2013:

A: A copper-ish amber. Full head of foam, easily an inch and a half. Nice retention.

S: Very citrusy. Not as hoppy as I was expecting. Slight maltiness in the end.

T: Citrus notes right up front. Still not as hoppy as I was expecting. Slight maltiness in the end.

M: Very bitter feeling. Long-lasting heaviness. Somewhat malty notes on the tongue.

O: A pretty good IPA, but I've had better. Enjoyed the strong citrus notes.

Pours a clear straw yellow/orange with a two finger head. Smells of floral piney hops with a touch of sweetness. Taste is well balanced and hits upfront with the bite of the sweet piney hops and a touch of citrus lemon. There's a spice quality of something like lemon-grass that adds a small bite to the flavour. A touch of the nutty malt comes through on the end although incredibly covered by the hop notes. Mouthfeel is pretty stellar with its upfront bite and clean chewy character that keeps it drinkable.

Overall Blind Pig is a fantastic example of a west coast ipa. It may be a bit hard to find but it's worth the trouble.
