The appearance on this brew is quite nice it has a beautiful amber/copper color. The nose on this brew is very alcoholic but it has some nice resinous hoppy undertones. Pineapple really comes to mind when sniffing on this thing but it is dominated by malty alcohol. The taste on this beer isn't great. A good amount of alcohol comes across on the palate. Once past the alcohol this is quite a malty beer with roasty caramel characteristics but it is dominated by alcohol. The brew is not too bitter. The bitterness it does have seems to be from the alcohol rather than from the hops. Needs more hops! Not particularly good the way it is as it lacks the hop presence of a good DIPA, but this thing is perfectly drinkable.

Bright and clear, orange-colored body with a very thick, persistent, foamy head. Heady swirls of hop aromas suggesting oranges, pineapple, pine, and grape jelly. Warm and soft toasted grain flavors and feel with a soothing hop bitterness. Medium-light body; crisp, clean; dry finish.

A nicely done DIPA that looks great and tastes just as good. Good mix of bitterness and alcohol warmth at the finish. Feels rather light for such a big beer, but the mouthfeel just makes this excellent beer all the more drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured a nice cloudy orange with a one finger white head. Quite nice looking, very true to it's style. Scents of wet grass, citrus pith, pineapple, tropical fruit, citrus juice, grapefruit, a hint of grain and some alcohol notes. Very much a DIPA in the nose, with maybe a bit more alcohol than some other notable examples of the style. Quite nice however. Taste starts with bitter citrus pith and pine resin, before moving into grapefruit in the middle, with some faint hints of apricot and tropical fruit. It's not as bitter as many DIPAs, and seems a little low on hops for the style. There is also a bit of alcohol in there, of the rubbing alcohol persuasion. It's not a horrible flavor profile, but I've tasted more complex, more bold, more flavorful DIPAs. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied, moderate in carbonation and with an oily/slick mouthfeel. It's true to style, easy to drink, not much more to say. Overall it's a pretty good DIPA, but it's not fantastic, and there are certainly better examples of West Coast DIPAs out there. I'd have it again, but not over a lot of other DIPAs out there.
