A: Really nice looking filtered IPA. Bright orange/amber with an off white head with pale yellow hues. Decent amount of head considering the abv
S: Just huge and super dank. A powerful smelling beer. A lot of the west coast notes come through - big fresh sticky resinous pine and incredibly bitter grapefruit rind. There is some really dank astringency - musty overripe pineapple and mango. Some sweet pink grapefruit comes through with some orange juice. There is a sweet caramel malt backbone that helps balance it out.
T: One of the most substantial and vibrant tasting beers I've ever had. Exploding with hop bitterness - leaves a resin hop oil film in the mouth. Incredibly bitter grapefruit, resin and pine hit first. The middle of the mouth it has a citrus and tropical fruit explosion with pink grapefruit, mango, orange, and some pineapple. Really, really incredible.
P: Huge mouthfeel for the style but works perfectly. Pretty soft carbonation and silky smooth.
O: This is an amazing beer. So incredibly flavorful with over-the-top hop intensity - it's the culmination of American hop-assult beers.
