On tap on the fair beaches of San Diego.; into a pint glass.
Appearance - orange with a syrup/honey hue. Decent white head and lacing.
Smell - hop forward indeed, but didn't knock my socks off...
Taste - a bit disappointing (though I admit to having this after a Green Flash Palate Wrecker)! One sided, bland (relatively speaking) with little to no complexity.
Feel - love the aggressive bitterness, but would be great with some creativity/complexity.
Overall - decent west coast DIPA, but much better options.

This impressive DIPA packs quite the punch with its depth of character, silky good looks, and drinkability. It's plenty viscous and dense without being too syrupy, and the tropical notes and toffee-like sweetness offer a nice balance to the more bitter hop forward qualities.
