A -Pours a hazy, wheaty yellow with nice head and lacing. Looks like one of the new school hazy, unfiltered, farmhouse sort of ales, ala Hills Farmstead and Tired Hands.

S - Nose is hoppy for sure, but in a nondescript sort of way. There's lemon, honey and pine, along with musty wheat.

T - Really crisp and dry, with a touch of rye spice and of course plenty of hops. Hop profile is cool and lemony, with an array of other citrus following it up, along with a hint of tart apple. Honey malt center that's a little boozy, but I don't mind that. Not as big in flavor as say a Heady Topper, which is also 8% ABV, instead it's a little more restrained. I appreciate the honey at the center of this beer the more I come back to it and it may actually be the star of this beer, outshining the hops.

M - Nice cool, soft mouthfeel, with lasting hop bitterness.

Overall, this is a solid, cool, fresh DIPA, as opposed to some of the "danker" versions on the market. Highly enjoyable, but not mind-blowing.

Serving type: can

On tap at the Toronado in San Francisco. Amber-orange color. Hoppy aroma, bits of pine and citrus. Flavor was maltier than I would like, alcohol, bitter, hops, citrus. Overall I thought this was ok but would probably not revisit it, too many other great California IPA's.

Serving type: on-tap
