This is my first legit tasting of a West Coast designated IPA. It poured beautifully with a picture perfect head. Slightly murky amber orange that tells me we are packing natural flavor here. Smells like hoppy bread dough. Wonderful hop flavor follows which takes me to a new place with every mouthful. Grass, dandelion, grapefruit, resin, mineral- a ubiquitous profusion of hop flavors continue to evolve. The label says "Extravagantly Hopped". Well, that about says it all. This beer is so well crafted it is wasted on a neophyte so save this for your well versed IPA connoisseurs. Overall it is a magnificent beer that is sure to impress any IPA fan.
