A - Pours a nice golden/amber hue with a rich creamy two finger head. Looks very inviting.

S - nice west coast citrus hop profile, but the aroma is a bit muted. Not the hop blast was hoping for. A bit of malt in the background, but mostly hops dominate here.

T - tasty citrus/tropical/a bit of pine here. While tasty, it is a bit muted like the smell. I was looking for more of a hop blast again.

M - Nice thick and creamy mouthfeel. Coat nicely and reminds me of the thickness of Pliny.

Overall this is a tasty, hop forward IPA that falls short of being excellent (or outsanding in this case). I'm happy to have tried it but there are much better IPAs to be had.

22oz bottle thanks to mattolesh, much appreciated. Nice orange color and a very invitingly hoppy smell to this beer. The flavor leaned more towards amarillo hops for me, lemony and yet bitter like aspirin. A very tasty IPA and I'd cop fresh bottles if I could.
