Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Deep and somewhat unfiltered like looking apricot to tangerine like orange color. Very fine carbonation, with a bright white and whipped up four finger aggressive and controlled head. Thick island cap lacing and creamy whipped toppings of retention, curling lacing and sheets and rings runnning everywhere. Real nice.

Great bouquet. Strong notes of citrus and tropical warmth, with a hint of heat and slight alcohol hotness. Juicy and even a bit dank and earthy as well, fun mix with a leafy strong very green like character it seems.

Palate comes with a nice juiced tropical body. Big resin and piney bitter hop finish on the aftertaste, with a lingering hints of zesty grapefruit oils. Mid palate doesn't fill with too much flavor, leaving most of the taste on the finish it seems. A bit light but still solid, but leaves malt behind with a grassy piny coating, if slightly wet.

Overall a simple fun sort of mixed up West coast IPA.
