Orange amber colour. Nice big head, good carbonation.
Smell of pine and citrus, and strong as well.
Taste very powerfull too. It's initially bitterness all over, but the malts do come through sweet, making it a nice experience.
It has a soft sweet mouthfeel, but also dry bitter finish.
Excellent beer as an IPA. This brewery (it's my third beer of them today) does have a range where you cannot go wrong. It's simple and tasty.

Solid sandy head that craters over glowing orange body.
Straight up hop pellet nose - green, resin, flower - stunningly fresh.
A bit of apricot on crispbread then piney, sappy, orangey hops.
Pink grapefruit zest finish and undulating waves of bitterness on the linger.
Medium, well chewy, oily.

American (CTZ and Simcoe) hops delivered with aplomb: proper IBUs, loads of citrus, and just enough malt. Some reviews here say it's got a Belgian signature; I can't see that - it could be from Cali. Especially resonant; flavors just don't give up.

"Jackie Chan in your mouth" sez Mark C.
