Appearance: Light copper, slightly hazy. 1/4" very light tan foamy head. Excellent lacing. Thin froth retained.

Aroma: Piney, resiny, string fruity element, hard to pin down (citrus?), malty sweetness in the background.

Taste: Clean arrival, slight sweetness, earthy across mid-palate. VERY bitter finish. Tangible malt presence on mid-palate.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light; enough malt firmness.

Overall: I like this better than Headhunter; I think CBC is more balanced. A standout IPA.

A - Clear golden orange beer, large head reduces slowly to thick white cap that laces as it goes down.

S - Strong smell of mango and passionfruit, grapefruit, overripe peaches with a subtle wild hop elements of onion and sweat, a hint of dank grassiness.

T - Bright grapefruit and passionfruit flavors, followed by a grapefruit pith hit that survives through the close.

M - Good carbonation, but heavy bitterness and resin chewiness that builds.

O - Delivers on the promise of a strong, West Coast style IPA. Big flavors and big bitterness, it can blow your palate out, but it is a wonderful ride.
