Purchased from Southbay Drugs
Clear golden pour with a voluminous white head. Amazing retention and copious lacing.
Piney hop and citrus perfume subsides into a consistently hoppy aroma.
The flavor is lean and hoppy. As the beer warms, some fruitiness emerges, I never quite got the mango/pineapple flavors that others describe, but this definitely gets better the longer you let it warm.
The mouthfeel is soft and cushioned on the palate.
Drinkability is very high too.
I wasn't sure what to expect from such an overly hyped beer, but I was not disappointed. Very good IPA.
