look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured in a Spiegalgau IPA glass.

Beautiful clear light copper color with a 4F head. Carbonation bubbles from the bottom of the glass/

Aroma- grapefruit, some vanilla. Not as strong as other West Coast DIPAs, but quite good.

Mouth Feel- very carbonated as expected.

Taste. Excellent grapefruit, citrus. The finish is exceptionally hoppy( 100 IBUs) which rounds out the flavor profile. The hoppy bitterness lingers on my tongue.

An excellent DIPA- very West Coast. One of my favorite breweries from this region.

3.5/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours an attractive amber color. Carbonation is barely visible. Moderate beige head with some minor lacing.

Smell: Hops comes through as grapefruit and pine. The malt presence is faint and earthy.

Taste: Hops hit the tongue hard. Give it a swish and the hop oils will envelope the tongue in a warm, comforting manner. Grapefruit flavors linger, with barely noticeable malt notes of sweet tea.

Mouthfeel: The initial burst of hop oils hits like sandpaper; in a good way, if that makes sense. Drink quickly, because I found as the beer approached room temperate this effect vanished. Sticky, but not cloying,

Overall: Above average. The citrus hop notes are really not complex at all, but the sheer presence of hop oils hits the tongue hard, and I like that. There is a faint malt back that is intriguing. Overall, one of the better DIPA's that I have had recently, up against Victory DirtWolf and Flying Dog Double Dog, all of which I have tried for the first time yesterday and today.
