What a fantastic beer. Pours a bright orange with a hint of amber. Full and thick creamy head that leaves quite an impact on the sides of the glass. There's even a cloud of tiny floaters in this beer.

Smells of piney vanilla sweet lemon cake with a touch of grassy citrus notes. Taste hits you straight away with the piney hops then leads you into a mouth smacking sweet vanilla. The after taste is the only thing keeping me from taking another immediate sip. I really get a great sticky feeling that helps with the sweetness that seems to show up. The mouthfeel is fantastic and just right. Feels like something that I should slowly enjoy. Sort of highly drinkable at first then turns viscus at the end.

Overall, this is one of the reasons I'm glad I live on the west coast. A fantastic example of west coast Ipa's. I can't wait to have this on tap again. Although on tap, it seems to be even more drinkable!
