The smell is amazing, the citrus hops jump out of the cup. Blood orange/burnt orange in color. The citrus hops jump out on the taste too. grapefruit, orange, pine, come first. some malt came second, and then finally the hops left a bitterness lingering around. it seems like it got slightly thinned out by the 9.5 abv.

Been craving west coast IPA's lately!

A: Beer pours a pale orange and remains completely transparent. It is topped off with a monstrous 2+ fingered, creamy white head that fades slowly and leaves behind some lacing.

S: Floral piney notes upfront are followed by tangy citrus and sweet malts. Great smells, just too subtle for me.

T: The brew starts with floral and piney hops upfront (like the smell) with a fair amount of bitterness to them. The bitterness is followed by sweet candied malts that surprisingly allow the bitterness to return that resonate long after each sip. Hides the ABV well too!

M: Creamy, medium/heavy for the variety, little burn from the booze, well carbonated.

O: Not quite as elegant as say, Pliny, but makes up for its faults in shear boldness and character.

4.22/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

S: Bold citrus along with some pine. Mostly orange with some peach and grapefruit. Touch of bready malt.

L: Fairly clear bright burnt orange. Off-white creamy head that dissipates to a good dusting.

T: Dank hops along with lots of peach with a slight breadiness. Medium high citrus bitterness, slightly harsh with lots more citrus along with some dank notes.

M: Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

West coast blast of hops. A really solid beer that is just barely missing that balance to be a great beer.
