Appearance: It pours a mostly clear golden color with a white head and average lace
Flavor: The taste has a nice West Coast-style hop bitter punch, with a lighter sweetness
Palate: The body of this one is medium-plus, with a somewhat sticky feel, and a rather dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought that this one was a really nice west coast style IPA. To put it simply: They done good here!
