4.14/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Hazy medium amber/copper color with orange and yellow hues. Off-white 2-finger head with medium retention.
Hops on display: Citrus, white flowers, pine resin, grapefruit peel, earthiness, dankness.
On the palate the intensity builds as the beer moves across the palate. Grapefruit and lemon zest, nice grain quality, grass and hay, pine sap and resin. Earthiness and a mild dankness.
Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. Well balanced carbonation. Bold bitterness that builds across the palate. Bitterness lingers and generates a long finish.
If you are looking for a strong representation of the West Coast IPA style, you should enjoy a bottle. Very drinkable. Well done.

3.78/5 rDev -10.4%

355ml bottle served into a pint glass bottled 4/22/2013
A- A nice copper/orange color with a fluffy head of white foam and some of the nicest lace i have ever seen in a brew.
S- floral with strong whiffs of grapefruit pith and pine.
T- Fresh bread crust and a touch of sweetness upfront which quickly becomes taken over by strong citrus bitterness representing flavors of grapefruit and a touch of lemon, then developing into a more herbal character with a straight forward bitterness and drying finish with lingering citrus notes in the aftertaste. After the first few sips i had a hard time believing this was 95 IBUs but its starting to come forth towards the end of the glass.
M- its a pretty creamy IPA. Medium bodied. With very smooth carbonation.
D- a tasty beer with a wide variety of hop flavors make it deliciously drinkable.
Overall this beer has so much going for it but i found the level of alcohol a little high. I like IPAs to be around the 6% - 6.5 % range. Once you get over the 7% range you start venturing into the Double IPA valley, which is by no means a bad thing. Good brew nonetheless. Looking for more brews from this place. Well done.
