A: Lighter shade of yellow-amber. Slightly hazy. Forms a large, fluffy, off-white head that has good retention and leaves a good amount of lacing on the way down.
S: Aroma is all hops, but not as powerful as expected. Never-the-less, the aroma is all hops: citrus, lemon, pine, and a bit of hoppy spice.
T: Light malts and a bit of biscuit. Then the hops kick in. Lemon, peppery spice, pine, and some citrus. There is a bit of a white grape quality, maybe some Nelson Sauvin in the mix?
M: On the heavier side of medium. Moderate bitterness. Mild dryness. Appropriate carbonation.
O: A very nice beer. Full on West Coast style IIPA.

I had a batch with the sell by date of 7/4/14, and consumed on June 22. Growler from keg at local beer-specific retailer. Good dense gold color, a little hazy, but normal for a DIPA. Good healthy one finger head which left slowly. Aroma is almost pure hops, with a backing of malty sweetness. A bit grassy in its hoppiness, along with pine, grapefruit, and tropical fruit. Taste is wonderful, full in your face hoppy bitter resinousness, backed by enough sweet malt to make it really drinkable. Again, a bit of green freshness in the hops, I'd compare it most to nopalitos or green agave, which accents the pine and grapefruit excellently. Finishes dry, hoppy, and leaving you wanting more. Great beer. My first in this series, but definitely not my last.
