Clear light orange with white head.
Nice mix of citrus and earthy hop aroma, malt comes through under the hops.
All the citrus notes are upfront. In the middle there are earthy grass notes and you are left with bitterness. Malt is present and is never pushed out by the hops.
Medium body; Robust feel but smooth and easy drinking.
Really good regular IPA from the west coast, exactly what you would expect.
Serving type: bottle

Golden light-orange color. Sudsy topper. Looks good. Could do without the frosted glass.
Pine, citrusy orange, apricot, and spicy floral notes. Lotta hoppy in the nose. Pale semi-sweet malty balance going on stung by a piquant alcohol odor.
Major pine, citrus, and spicy woodiness. A lot of bitterness, upfront, with a big malt punchiness. Excellently hoppy. A little bruising.
Mouthfeel is delightfully engaging. Carbonated well. Nice spiciness. Body has some crush to it. Points knocked for heavy heat.
Solid IPA. Not a typically West Coast, West Coast IPA.
Serving type: on-tap
