Deep amber with a good finger of off white head. Nice smelling IPA some sweet malty under notes but this brew is dominated by delicious hops. I’m picking up on heavy pine notes as well as some citrus in the aroma. A nice hoppy flavor and a bit of hop bitterness as is to be expected in a beer like this. The flavor to me is primarily grapefruit with some pine resin more in the aftertaste. These hoppy characteristics are balanced out quite nicely by the solid caramel malt backbone to this brew. This is definitely a hop forward beer though, just the way I like ‘em. A damn solid west coast IPA that goes down surprisingly easy and is quite refreshing considering it is a 7.3% brew.
