Beautiful dark copper-orange, amber-red, almost brown at times. Thin off-white head, creamy and adequate lacing, sticky to the glass.
Lovely tropical aromas of citrus, piney hops, sweet fruits, caramel malt. Very sweet, with the bitter hops still being noticeable. Not quite as big of an aroma as I hoped for. But still very good.
Pleasant sweet malts, fruits and a tropical taste that is appropriate for being on the West Coast, or any Coast for that matter. Hops shine through somewhere in between the malts and tropical fruits, and afterwards as well. This is very well-balanced and very enjoyable. Solid medium body, with just the right amount of carbonation.
Great stuff! A solid IPA, would love to get some more, and would definitely have again!!
