This was in my sights for a while. Pours a deep gold, amber, head is thick but dissipates quickly. The scent is underwhelming, not strong. Some citrus and hop notes. Taste is pure grapefruit and pineapple punch. Hoppy and bitter, nice pucker factor. Has the requisite piney resins as well. Bitter mouthfeel, not sticky, tacky maybe. Great IPA!

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
