A: Pours a clear, copper in color with hints of gold and amber. A decent amount of head sits atop but quickly subsides to a thin layer of cream. Carbonation levels look normal to low. There's quite a bit of oil and foam sticking to the edge of the glass as you drink. Exactly what I would expect from a double IPA, though I could use a bit more head retention.

S: Thick and aromatic with tons of spicy, floral and tropical fruit hops. Notes of mango, peach and apricot dominate a solid, bready malt backbone.

T: Bready up front followed by a spicy, floral hop avalanche. Not terribly fruity on the tongue. Finishes bitter with hop spice and toasted malts. Not terribly complex but very potent.

M: Medium bodied with lively carbonation and ample chewiness. The hop oils coat the tongue a bit and the finish seems to last forever. A bit of a palate wrecker. Not very drinkable, though being a double IPA at 8.5% ABV I wouldn't expect it to be. Warming.

O: Another great offering from CBC, this one can stand proud amongst some of the other west coast DIPA's and is sure to please the hop enthusiast near you. Personally I prefer my DIPA's a bit more on the citrus spectrum, but I know a good brew when I find one. Cheers!
