4.03/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - the first pour is a pristine and clear pale golden color and three fingers worth of bubbly snow white foam. On the second pour the liquid turns cloudy, though does not retract from the pleasant color. The white foam is well over four fingers worth and tightly packed bubbles is an understatement. The foam has great retention. Leaves some spotty lacing as sipped.

S - totally hop dominated but mostly pleasant notes soft fleshy fruits. Citrus pulp, grapefruit zest, papaya and mango. Hints of grass. pine needles, and wild flowers add a balancing earthy character.

T - Slighly sweet doughy white bread on the front end. Sweet fruit character enters quickly with notes of pineapple and mango. the bitter citrus peel and earthy pine notes swell to the dominate flavor as the sweet fruit and malt linger underneath. finish is quick with only a touch of lingering citrus.

M - lighter side of medium bodied. slightly watery texture yet the high carbonation allows for a crisp character (aided by the bitterness) which sings.

O - An excellent example of a West Coast IPA. This is something I would drink constantly if it were available locally. Very pleased I had the chance to try it.

Bought a bomber at Fallbrook liquor and had Nessy burger while I was there.
Nice pour into a tulip. Deep foggy gold color, creamy head.
Smell is mostly bready hops, with a tiny bit of citrus.
Taste is also dominated by hops, with a nice carbonated slick mouth feel.
Overall a decent ipa especially when fresh, but many other options out there.
I feel if they held back on the bready malt a bit it would be a better pour.
