Pours a hazed brownish tinted amber, moderate frothy off-white head and decent sticky lacing. Scent is strong on toffee-like malts, the hop profile leans on a combination of floral, earthy and spicy notes which keep the present pine and citrus notes in check. taste again starts off with the sweet toffee like malts, the hops start out as bitter, never finding that one dominant flavor and coming out as a blend of the notes found in scent. medium bodied, god level of carbonation, not as dry as many dIPAs. A decent beer, not a hop bomb by any means and a more than aggressive malt profile, almost DFH in quality of its build.

On tap at the TDR hopfest event the other day.

The beer pours an amber copper color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is sweet and a bit spicey, but with some noticeable tobacco, earth and dry citrus. On the palate, this IPA is definitely on the sweet side, something I find a bit unusual in a West Coast IPA. However, there the beer has a considerable bitter finish, which helps to counter that sweetness to some extent. Mouthfeel is fairly light, which surprised me given the abv. The finish is long and bitter, though ultimately the flavor profile is still dominated by the sweet malt. Drinkability is pretty good, with the alcohol well disguised and integrated into the flavor profile.

Nothing extraordinary here, but I thought this nevertheless to be a pretty solid beer.
