3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained white head, with minimal lacing, over a clear amber (SRM 7) body..........nose is pine, grapefruit, hints of apricot, pineapple, hint of toffee/caramel.......taste is heavy pine, grapefruit peel, hints of toffee/caramel, apricot, pineapple, finishing with a moderate biter bite.....mouth feel medium, carbonation high adding spritz. This is obviously a "Left Coast" IPA. It is redolent of hop aromas and flavors with the bitterness nicely balanced back by the malts. This is a cleansing, refreshing, delicious confection.
