Had this on tap at Zimmzys in Belmont Shore. It pours a beautiful sunset orange with a dense one inch cap of bright white foam that sticks to my glass as I get into this. The nose on this brew is absolutely amazing, it reeks of Citra and Simcoa hops, dense rich citrus fruits, tropical fruits, some nice mineral notes to balance things out, insanely delicious nose. The flavor profile steps right in, the buds are infused with mango,tangerine, nectarine, and lemon and lime pulp.A bit of sweet apricot jam infused with biscuit notes and sea salt balance it all out in a gorgeous mouth full of West Coast IPA 101. The mouth is fresh, a bit resinous, which it should be with all the drippings from the pine, but it leaves dry and requires another quaff immediately.
What a great find.The fact they are 35 minutes away is better, I plan on tasting their lineup in its entirety soon. If you love KRBC Citra, Alpine Nelson, or are just a fan of tropical/citrus forward West Coast IPA/DIPA then this is right up your alley. Great stuff !

Brought a couple bottles of this back home from my Rose Bowl trip. Go Spartans!
A: transparent copper amber with a finger of beige foam. Good legs and lacing
S: lots of tropical fruit and pine
T: hop flavors follow the nose but the malt really asserts itself here and very nicely. Tastes like a flavorful base malt with enough crystal to be noticed but not overdone
M: a very rich thick feel with medium carbonation. Really takes it's time to dry out on the tongue, but it does get there
O: a terrific DIPA. I hope is brewery is very successful and one day distributes to Chicago. So glad I brought this home.
