I tried this one back when I wasn't a big fan of IPA's. My brother flew a couple bottles back from a trip to California. Poured it from the bottle into tulip glasses. Poured hazy with a 1 finger head (probably poured too gently on my part out of respect). Pine and grapefruit aromas with a moderately strong piney bitterness through the sip. I appreciated it at the time as a great indication of the style, and I hope to try it again soon, now that I really enjoy IPA's.
