Appearance: Hazy amber with a fluffy off-white head.

Smell: Tons of flowery hops!

Taste: Fairly bitter right up front, but well balanced in the middle. Leaves a mild bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Moderately thick and creamy.

Overall: Very good IPA/DIPA (somewhere on the border). Very aromatic hops, bitterness is definitely there but kept in check.

A: Light, golden straw pale color with a thick white head and minimal retention. Looks like Alpine's Nelson.

S: Nose is really nice. Very clean, fresh lemon, lemon peel, some exotic tropical fruits, dry spice and resin. I'm thinking centennial and Nelson, but its columbus, simcoe, chinook and cascade.

T: Lemon, some grapefruit, a bit of pine, chewy/earthy resin, bitter/spice in the back end from the hops and the rye. Not any caramel sweetness, which I really appreciate.

M: Light-Medium body, light-medium carbonation

O: A fantastic IPA. Kind of reminds me of Alpine's Nelson but not as much tropical fruit or as well polished (and no Nelson hops). There is a bit of lite beer urine funk the first few sips but then that disappears and your left with a very easy drinking, 8%, delicious, smooth, citrusy SoCal IPA. Highly recommended.
