4.45/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.

Appearance: Pours a crisp looking golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two finger white head that slowly fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: A ripe and juicy hop forward aroma with big hints of citrus fruit, pine, and some background malt. Upfront citrus hops with hints of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, tangerine, apricot, lemon, melon, peach, and passion fruit. Earthy and floral hops with hints of grass and dank pine resin. Slight hints of honey. Bready backing of pale malt with hints of grains, cracker, caramel, biscuit, and yeast. Pretty big with the hops. A very good aroma.

Taste: As good as it smells, a ripe juicy hop forward aroma with a big taste of citrus fruits, earthy pine, and backing malt. Nicely sharp and bitter upfront with a big citrus hop presence. Taste of grapefruit, orange peel, mango, pineapple, tangerine, lemon, apricot, peach, melon, and passion fruit. Earthy, floral, and herbal hop notes with some grass and notes of pine resin. Background taste of malt with notes of grains, caramel, cracker, yeast, and biscuit. Very big with the citrus hop flavors. A little note of honey. Pretty good West Coast IPA taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very juicy and fairly oily with a nice dry bitterness. Alcohol heat is masked well.

Overall: A very good West Coast style IPA. Very good juicy taste of citrus fruits with some good earthy notes.

Serving type: bottle
