dark urine color, creamy white head on top. good lace. looks beautiful.
smells sweet and malty. lots of differences between the west coast and east coast... I just didn't know because I hadn't had any east coast ipa before....
taste is sweet. slight bitterness. expected way more for a double ipa. some candy taste. sweet biscuit and malt, though. very easy to drink. very tasty. very nice. very interesting to try the different styles around the country and world. someone mentioned there are some really good IPAs coming from brazil??

22oz bomber from batches 363-364. Poured into a teku glass.

Appearance is cloudy gold with very active carbonation and a 1-finger head. Smells delicious: lots of pineapple and straight pine; a candied/malty fruitiness; and some mangoes and citrus. Tastes just as good: sweet malts mixed with bitter citrus, tropical fruits, and nice piney bitter hops. The maltiness really held everything together for me. Mouthfeel was medium-carbed, smooth, creamy, and chewy. Overall, a must-try and one of my go-to DIPAs. Second only to Citra on the hop side of Pipeworks' catalog.
