Thanks to Matta for this bottle. Nothing wrong with this beer. Tasted what it should be, an west coast IPA. Nice crisp hop taste to it.

Tap. Pours a hazy orange-yellow. Whitish head with moderate lacing. Aroma is malty and hoppy. Decent smooth medium mouthfeel. Long hop finish.

very rocky off-white head that lasts very long! lots of lacing patterns of arched streaks. copper/golden, orangey color, supermicro carbonation bubbles rising through the center. hoppy nose, also light pine. citrus nose - lemon/grapefruit. floral notes too. large yeast chunks at second pour. very strong hop taste, high IBUs. medium body and mouthfeel. snappy carbonation. super stealthy clean finish. malt slightly obscured by hops, but still well balanced.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer looks fabulous. I mean this is so rocky you could bounce a quarter off of it. And it just lingers and lingers and lingers...forever! Nice lovely deep amber, burnt orange color. Nose is exceedingly irony and slightly sour rather than floral...interesting. However in your mouth the floral aspects really shine. This brew is excellently balanced. Malts and hops are holding hands and loving one another. Beautiful.Palate is so creamy I thought it was on nitro. This brew is excellent aesthetically. Taste is excellent and subtle as well just not florally or resiny enough for me.

Bottled version. Big on souriness and hops. Fruity finish, definitely a great IPA.

This was an all around great IPA. Lots of Hoppy aroma’ and flavors similar to two hearted - from the centennial Im assumingl. Great finish which was exceptionally smooth. Slightly clloudy which I like for the style. I will buy this again I think.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks great in the glass, hazy copper color, creamy and full. Earthy hop aroma, nice malt balance. Flavor is earthy as well, nice malt followed by some slightly bitter hops. I expected bigger hops to be honest with you. Creamy mouthfeel, lightly bitter aftertaste but didn’t stick around for too long. Nice, but lacking that nice kick to make it outstanding.
