Bottle into a pint glass. Lives up to the hype. Big, hoppy flavor with citrus, mostly lemon. Nose mirrorsmthe and strength. Very sweet smell and taste that is a bit unique for an IPA, but awesome. Mouthfeel was fairly easy going for an imperial. Get down.

4.08/5  rDev -2.6%

A - Orange-copper in color, an aggressive pour leads to a 1 finger head that dissipates into a nice sticky lace ring. Coated the glass all the way down.

S - A heavy dose of Citra hops, and a caramel sweetness.

T - Bright and tangy. Much sweeter than I expected, hop notes are there, but the bitterness is not. I even pick up an almost strawberry flavor, delicious.

M - Easy drinking, especially at this ABV. Just sweet enough, not cloying at all. Finish is fresh and wet.

O - A West Coast IIPA suitable for hot weather drinking around here. Not so weighty feeling that I have to wait for cooler times, and I really appreciate that.

4.08/5  rDev -2.6%

22oz bottle poured into a snifter

Appearance
Golden straw with 2 fingers of off-white head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity and moderate carbonation.

Nose
Dank, pineapple, papaya, tangerine, lemon and candy sugar.

Taste
Candied citrus, pineapple, papaya, tangerine and lemon. Thin candy sugar backbone with drops of caramel and toast. Dank resinous pine and lemon zest finishes it off.

Mouthfeel
Light-medium bodied, crisp and dry.

Overall
Packed full of hops with just a tiny malt profile to balance things out. Very quaffable for 8.0% and a great value at $5.99/22oz bottle.
