Big thanks to metallitone1 for this treat.
22 oz. bomber poured into a bomber.
Pours a foggy burnt orange with a nice one finger white head that quickly dies down to a thin lacing that lasts throughout. Stickiness is pretty damn good. Wow west-coast DIPA. BIg grapefruit smell with a hint of peppery spices mixed in there: nothing more, nothing less. Simple, yet so complex at the same time, a smell like no other. With the taste there's a bit more pine on the tongue than there is in the nose which makes this such an amazing DIPA. Starts off with a fresh evergreen taste that becomes a bit bitter and dry from an earthy hop flavor. Aftertaste is almost orange/clementine-like. Such a complex tasting brew with so many flavors to offer. Sip and enjoy! Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a good carbonation. Solid representation of a west-coast IPA. East-coast really has some catching up to do.

Small head, disapated quickly. Bunch of white stuff from the rim to the bottom of the glass after all the beer was gone.
Faint smell of a pine needle when you snap it between your fingers.
Leaves a film on your lips like chapstick. That was cool.
Don't really want to write any more words. Just trying to make quota.
Serving type: on-tap
