Light copper color and completely see-through. Big head on the pour which lasts forever and coats the glass in lacing.
Aggressive pine-like, grapefruit and soapy hop qualities in the nose. Just a tad of honey sweetness.
Mild bready malt flavor with a hint of honey. Make way for the hop bomb which attacks your palate with an unrelenting onslaught of grapefruit, lemon rind, soap and sharp pine needles. Very pungent and definitely a west coast brew. There's a touch of juicy melon to balance the bitterness but it doesn't go very far.
Medium bodied and well carbonated with a dry finish.
Good DIPA. True to the style. A bit unbalanced though.
