look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Clear light copper color with a small white head that fades to a thin film across the top. An ample amount of carbonation gives it a lively appearance.

S: Piney hop aroma with a significant toasted malt backbone. Overall, a resiny kind of aroma. There is also a touch of alcohol towards the end.

T: The taste is much more complex than the aroma leads you to believe. The piney hops and toasted malts are there along with a more tropical character in the hops. There is a slight alcoholic burning finish to go along with a mild bitter bite.

M: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Kind of oil-like in that it coats the palate with a bittering effect, yet also a bit dry.

O: A solid DIPA. The aroma was a little one dimensional, but it picked itself back up with a more complex and satisfying taste.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: clear golden color. Forms a small to moderate sized off-white head. Leaves a minimal amount of lacing.

S: intensely aromatic. Quite hop forward with lots of citrus, grapefruit, and orange mixed with some malty sweetness and a bit of alcohol.

T: taste is similar. Concentrated citrus flavor, moderate pale malt sweetness, honey and even a bit of apple juice. Maybe a touch of pine but the citrus hop flavor dominates. some alcoholic spice on the finish.

M: on the heavier side of medium with a bit of viscosity to it. Moderate bitterness. Easy carbonation.

O: a nice, west coast style IPA.

Serving type: bottle
