Dark amber with sepia finger.
Squishy mashed orange pulp nose.
Sturdy thread of caramel, the pine sap, dried orange rind and a touch of mango for hops.
Lemon oil finish and sweet linger.
Medium, chewy, sticky.

Thick and chewy for an IPA. 7 hops varieties make it stewy rather than complex. Sturdy, but nothing exciting.

Appearance: Copper hue with good clarity apart from some chill haze. Half a finger of off-white suds.

Aroma: Nice fruity hops shining through. It's difficult to pick out particular aromas but what's there is pleasant with a west coast feel.

Taste: Starts with a nice wallop of bitterness to set the mood. Although the color suggests some malt involvement, the flavor is all hop driven. Once the bitterness ebbs away, near the finish, sweet pineapple and passion fruit ooze onto the palate. This is definitely a west coat IPA in my book. The flavor and finish is superbly clean. The only downside is the great hop flavor isn't as powerful or as long lasting as it could be.

Mouthfeel: Just below medium in body with average carbonation for the style. Easy drinkability.

Final Thoughts: Really good IPA from a local brewery. There are some moments of greatness in the flavor and a dry quality that works well to keep me sipping. Would I drink it again? Yes, hopefully on-tap next.

Has a bright, fresh aroma with some light citrus notes and some pine and resin. The malt has a sweet note that stays in the back, but is present. There is also a light peppery character. At first the pine and resin notes dominate in the hop flavor, but as it warms the citrus comes out more. The finish is crisp with a light oxydized note. Overall, this one was a pleasant IPA.
