look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a tulip with some slight white lacing and head. Pours a more or less golden color, a slight haziness, though not as much as nelson (which i had immediately before this one).
Carbonation is pretty evident.
Smell is a peachy/piney blast, very very pleasant.... not a whole lot of malt evident in the smell or the taste for that matter.
Smell has a lot in common with nelson, though not quite as distinct to me... the floral character is evident throughtout.
Taste is outstanding, in line with the best west coast ipa's i've had, just pure hoppy goodness that does not subside for the entire glass.
Mouthfeel is very crisp with a slight sense of resin (not nearly as much as expo hop or pure hop).... not as much of the "bite" as nelson. Overall in line with what you would think of for a good west coast ipa in terms of the mouthfeel and, in turn, the drinkability.
Would certainly be one of my go to's if I lived in the area.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Pours more of a gold color but when resting in the glass it is gold with a slight orange hue, leaves a frothy head that takes awhile to vanish, leaves some nice lacing on the glass as well
S: A perfect balance of pine, tropical fruits, grapefruit, slightly sweet malts, and a hint of bitterness, fantastic smell to this brew.
T: Up front you get a lovely greeting of pine sand grapefruit mixed, then it transitions to those lovely tropical fruits, and finishes with a perfectly balanced mix along with the perfect amount of bitterness. This beer is so well balanced and flavorful, it is absolutely outstanding!
M: Superb mouthfeel, so light crisp and refreshing, leaves your mouth a little dry which leaves you begging for more! So drinkable as well!
O: This beer is phenomenal! Get your hands on it!

Poured this 22 oz, undated bottle into a Spiegelau glass. The body was crystal clear and copper in color. The head was white and foamy, it left speckles of lace.
The smell was so vivid! Citrus and wet hay. Peppery. Dried pineapples. A little sweaty. Lime peel. Leafy, organic hops. yum.
The taste was of citrus and pine. Green, grassy, fresh hops. Slightly sweet with an aspirin-like bitterness. Stone fruit flavors in the middle with a nice lingering bitterness in the finish. Classic.
The body was medium and the carbonation was moderate.
