Serving - Bottle poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass

A - A light copper color, crystal clear with some active carbonation. Poured with a 1.5 finger head. Great looking beer.

S - Lots of piney hops up front with a touch of malt in the background. Hops are the star of this show though. Very strong aroma.

T - Taste follows the nose. Piney hops up front with a slight malty sweet finish.

M - A touch too active on the tongue. Leaves a bitter finish. Very dry.

O - Very enjoyable. 9.5% is well hidden. If the carbonation was toned down a bit, this would be damn near perfect.

I have been waiting a while to try this one and so glad to do it. Appearance is a nice golden, maybe copper color. Head was substantial and dissipated pretty quickly.
Odor is of pine, citrus as well as other fruitiness.
Taste starts with hops and goes between hops pine and sweet citrus as it continues. A little maltiness as well makes for a very nicely balanced flavor.
Mouth feel is pretty smooth and there is only a slight hint of alcohol. Somewhat light carbonation.
Overall an excellent west coast DIPA. Balanced through out ans complete.
