On tap at Westwood Brewing Company. A suprisingly, even shockingly good brewpub IPA. Had after an Arrogant Bastard and a Firestone Double Barrel, this was nearly on par with the Stone Brew. Pours with a clear dark amber body covered by a rocky, off-white head. Great tap beer lacing. Aroma is a very nice spicey and floral hop (wish I could name it, as it is very distinctive, but it slips my mind right now). Taste is a hoppy IPA that ends a bit malty and a tad soapy. Suprisingly well balanced! Watery mouthfeel with light carbonation. Better than I was expecting!!
