3.8/5  rDev -12.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a tulip pint glass.

A: Medium amber color with one finger of diminishing cinnamon-tinted foam that clings persistently to the walls after collapsing. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.

S: Abundant juicy mixed citrus with a strong grapefruit tendency. Coniferous foliage is also suggested, but not as obvious. Crystal malt also leans in. Intensity is high, while qualities are classic West Coast hops.

T: Begins off-dry, with pungent piney hop aromatics that are accompanied by dark orange citrus. Acidity is mild, still more tasted than felt, before esters start to affect the hop-derived citrus qualities. Husky crystal malt also emerges during the second act, working together with fermented savory herbaceous hop flavors to suggest moist earth by the finish. Bitterness grows slowly but steadily, becoming fairly strong by the end.

M: Medium viscosity, wet and smooth on the palate, with low carbonation.

D/O: This IPA has some stand-out qualities that makes it appear favorably next to a lot of other regionally-produced members of the style. The smell is strong and very much in agreement with expectations, while the texture is inspired--nearly sublime. The flavor profile could use more continuity; the dark crystal malt seen in the too-amber color weighs heavily upon the palate. Hop qualities are represented well in terms of flavor intensity, but come across as simplistic enough to keep it from the top tier.
