look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Light burnt-orange or peach pour with a thick, foamy white head. Lots of tiny bubbles replenish the head, giving this brew an almost pilsner-like appearance, very active. Hop oils dominate the nose, very thick and citrusy, lots of sugar and grapefruit in the aroma. Taste is thick but not tongue-numbing, lots of citrusy hops dominate as a good West Coast-DIPA should. Starts of sort of sweet before the hops take over, turning it bitter but drinkable. Yet, it still manages to not be cloying or too hoppy to the point of barely-drinkable.

A top-of-the-line DIPA from California, one of the better ones I have had.
