Poured from pint9 bottle into chalice. Murky golden brown, reddish-gold when held up to the light. Strong head, nice lace.
Smell isn't as pronounced as you would expect, but still seriously good. Sweet and floral.
Hops are definitely the first thing you notice upon sipping, with each taste bringing out a different side of the flavors of this beer. Wonderfully complex and covering the full spectrum of the hops you want in an American IPA. Malt comes in after the first wave to seal the deal, imploring you to pick the glass back up.
Mouthfeel is nice, solid but with enough carbonation to still give it a non-molasses zing.
Overall, a fine representation of a California beer. Can't wait to visit the brewery and try some fresh from the tap.
