Poured 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Color is a sort of golden brown, with very little head forming. Aroma is hop, and I don't catch too much else. The taste is a sort of malty vanilla that is a tiny bit sweet and becomes more tasty as it goes on. Its body is firm and it finishes the same. Absolutely solid DIPA.

12oz bottle with pry-off cap poured into a snifter bottled on 12/02/2014

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden amber with 1 finger of white head

Smell: Citrus hops with an underlying earthy pine note

Taste: Like chewing on hop flowers, so much citrus, lemon zest, pine needles, and all flavors from the hop spectrum without a palate wrecking bitterness

Mouthfeel: Medium and crisp

Overall: Just brilliant. Hits the nail on the head for the flavor I want in a DIPA. Its chock full of flavor without a crazy bitterness to overwhelm. Very bright in flavor and dry in its finish.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look- Slightly dark for a West Coast DIPA, copper colored beer with good lacing.

Smell- Wonderfully pungent and dank hop scent.

Taste- Heady tropical fruits... mango, pineapple, melon, a hint of pine... there is a lot going on here but it's not convoluted. Very subtle, toasty malt structure.

Feel- Crisp, complex but not overwhelming.

Overall- Great change of pace DIPA. Not what I usually reach for due to price constraints, but this beer is the real deal.
