Received from jimbowood in a trade, thanks again.

Served chilled and poured into my Padres pint glass.

Appearance is good. Hazy light-bronze colored brew with a very nice clumpy head that leaves a lot of lacing as it dies down.

Smell is good. Grapefruit and bittering hops and sweet malts. Very citrusy smell. I like.

Taste is very good. Pink grapefruit, tangarine with a nice fat, oily, hoppy bitterness. Nothing too bitter though; extremely balanced and crafted almost perfectly. Awesome blend of bitterness and sweetness. Reminds me of another favorite; Alesmith IPA.

Mouthfeel is very good. Thick and chewy (for the style) on the palate with fantastic texture. Love bottle conditioned beers.

Drinkability is very good. I can kill a sixer of this stuff quite easily me thinks.

Overall:
An awesome IPA that deserves all the hype. East coast brewery, west coast taste. Gotta love it.
