Lots of buttering hops in this imperial India pale ale from sly fox. Think of this a west coast version of their 113 ipa

Poured into a sam adams custom glass: color is gold, light effervescence, head is off white, presenting about 1/2 inch thick then dissipating to a light top and ring along the glass with some lacing on the glass sides.

Smell is hop forward, bitter with earth, grass notes presenting first followed by subtle malt notes, reminds of the the sweetness from munich malts.

Taste is simple: hop forward presetntation with similar flavors to the nose, grass and earth some pine and more citrus is notable; malt is subtle and comes through as it warms and the bitterness clears.

Mouthfeel is clean, nicely carbonated, solid bitter presence and profile; malt sweetness is not cloying, finishes dry.

Overall, a nice DIPA, it feels maltier than some, but is not sweet, hard to describe but the hop bitternes is appropriate and it really hides the strength well.
