Pours a cloudy amber color with some golden hues in the light. A large two inch off white head forms on the pour and lingers with excellent head retention. It's a realy beauty.

The aroma is great. Big citrusy hops smack you in the nose. Sticky sappy pine is also available. I just love West Coast IPA's, I could smell the thing for an hour.

The taste is quite nice. The sticky sappy pine I mentioned before is king here with a large dose of grapefruity citrus to back it up. The beer has a great bittering bite and yet lightly sweet just before that bitterness kicks in.

The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and highly carbonated with a very fine and gentle bubble. It's lightly oily and slick as well.

Drinkability is relatively high. The ABV is on the higher end but it's well incorporated which makes for an easy drinking experience. The flavor is bold, but appropriate for a DIPA. So all things combined it's really quite pleasant an experience.
