Bottle via stateline. Poured into a snifter, amber colored orange, decent head. Danky aroma of hops on the nose. Reminds me of a "wet" hopped brew. Taste isnt bitter but still hoppy. Flowers, a little danky/wet hop taste. Well balanced, easy to drink. Body: Light, low/medium carbonation. Overall: Nice IPA, that I would drink/buy again. Thanks to Matt for the recommendation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Respectable IPA. Pine and grapefruit aroma which carries over to flavor. Nice malt backbone (as foreshadowed by a beautiful copper color pour), coyly hidden under massive bitterness. As such, I disagree that this is a balanced IPA. It's West Coast style, old school, all the way.

Best by 03MAY13
Nice golden with a solid quilt of fine creamy foam. Smells classic west coast: resin, weed, pine, grapefruit and BO. Nice nose. Flavor is up front bitter with a malty (crackers, biscuit and some sweet english crystals) backbone. There is a good resin bitterness with a spicy flavor and some good midpoint purple kush. Medium on nearly full bodied with fine, moderated carb and a watery finish. Nice beer. I probably won’t go out of my way for this one, but would drink on tap locally, particularly with a good spicy meal or pizza.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Best before: 04/20/13. A clear amber pour with a smallish beige head. A fine aroma of juicy oranges, grapefruits, faint pineapple, caramel, and pine trees. Relatively medium-bodied on the way down. Caramel, a light biscuity presence, and some hints of buttered bread upfront taste-wise. Grapefruits, oranges, and zesty citrus rinds are plentiful towards the end. The alcohol is well-hidden. Nicely balanced. Well-done. A standard for the style.
