From a bottle to a glass.
This beers color was a cloudy, pale, golden-brown. The head of the beer was frothy and Lacy but didn't last very long.
The smell was of Pine and a variety of strong hoppy aromas. (Very Enjoyable)
The taste of this beer started out just as the scent had suggested. and then the complexity of the hops was ever more present. Hops definitely the largest contributing factor to this beer and kinda hard to extract lots of other flavors through it. it had the Perfect bitter taste to it (not a killer, very pleasant) More smooth and sweet than i would have expected, The hops bring out very herbal notes in this beer. the aftertaste is also dry and quite bitter as well.
Mouth-feel is very pleasing. medium bodied with the perfect amount of carbonation for this beer. leaves you feeling very warm.
The bottle warns you of how this beer wrecks your palate, so don't even try to eat anything you really want to enjoy while drinking this beer. other than that I wish I always had a steady supply of this beer because one could drink this every night. HIGHLY recommend this beer. Epitome of west coast IPAs.

EBD 1/14/14 Light amber pour with a light red cast. Well formed head with lasting lacing. Nice nose of citrus and pine hops against a toast and caramel sweet background. Light body with a smooth texture. Just enough carbonation to give a light effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is pretty much one dimensional - hop flavor (grapefruit over pine) flows to a prominent hop bitterness which resembles grapefruit rind. The malt is present, but only in a slight background fashion. The finish is all bitterness, but with a focus on the pine hop aspects.
