Note: Every bottle I've opened has been a *minor* bottle bottle, that is it's over flowed a little. Open with caution.
Look: Deep gold, clear color, big super fluffy white head that clings heavily to edges of glass.
Aroma: A lot of hops going on. Slightest citrus, a lot of earthy. It's sort of all there. The smell of numerous 'classic' hops. Slight sweet malt in background.
Taste: Slight earthy hop profile, hint of citrus (like the aroma), ends with a spicyness. All balanced by a followed by a malty sweetness. Basically all the hops that could run along the 48th are represented- slightly.
It's a solid representative of hoppy beers, but it is NOT a classic California hoppy beer. It leans towards the more subtle spicy, earth flavors. That's fine, but it's not a... bold beer.
Light/medium carbonation, same with body, smooth. Very accessible IPA, almost subtle and light for a IPA.
