look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.
Appearance: Pours a bright and hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head with decent retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing.
Smell: A very ripe and juicy hop forward aroma with big hints of citrus and pine. Upfront scent of citrus hops with juicy hints of orange, grapefruit, lemon, mango, tangerine, pineapple, and melon. Earthy and herbal hops with hints of pine resin, grass, and a little onion like scent. Nicely juicy and dank. Background pale malt scent with hints of caramel, grains, cracker, and yeast. A very good tropical aroma.
Taste: Like it smells, a very juicy and ripe hop driven taste with big notes of citrus fruit and pine. Upfront mix of citrus esters with notes of orange, grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, mango, tangerine, and melon. Dank piney hops along with some grass. Fairly oily. Solid backing presence of pale malt with notes of grains, cracker, caramel, and yeast. Very citrus forward and nicely sharp and bitter. A very good west coast style taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy, creamy, and oily with a drying finish.
Overall: A very good juicy West Coast style IPA. Nice citrus and pine flavor with a nice clean bitterness.
Serving type: bottle
