Pours a very nice amber color with an incredibly thick, wonderful head that has great retention and leaves a lot of lace...actually it is more than lace, it's more of a layer of head on the wall of the glass. It has a very clean pure hop aroma...nice and piney, very fresh! This beer gives one of the bigger straight up tongue burning hop blasts! This is incredible. As the immense hoppiness fades, malty tones come forward to finish the beer. It is really great to drink such a definitive west coast DIPA (or Imp IPA) out here on the east coast.
Awesome, awesome beer.

4.5/5 rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Golden tan, mellow yellow with a killer 3 inch thick, foamy head. Tons of sticky lacing.
Smell - Nice upfront citric, piney, grapefruit hops. Orange, some lemon, mild malt backbone. Sweet added sugars, along with some spices like coriander, lemon peel.
Taste - Right on par with aroma, big amounts of citric fruits featuring pine, grapefruit and orange. A bitter kick with some minor spices add a little zest behind tangerine and mango. A nice sugary note along with a caramel malt backbone.
Mouthfeel - Sweet tropical fruits along with some sugars coat the tongue. Palate gets more citric fruits, along with the caramel backbone. Aftertaste is minor bitter, tropical fruity.
Overall - Awesome. This should be a regular release. Really flavorful, nice amounts of hops and sweet sugars to create a nice smooth drink. Alcohol is hidden well and just adds to making this really pleasurable to drink.
