4.1/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a goblet.
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a half finger of white fluffy head that settled down to a thin layer after a minute.
Smell: Very citrus forward nose. Bitterness of grapefruit mixed with sweetness of pineapple. Sweet notes from the hops as well and a small hint of alcohol.
Taste: Taste is similar to the nose. Sweet pineapple and tangerine mixed with bitter grapefruit and bitter floral hops. Strong dry hop bite at the end.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a dry finish.
Overall: Very enjoyable IIPA which is very west coasted in character. Definitely would like to get some more of this.
Serving type: bottle

No bottling date that I can see.
A: Pours a cloudy straw/orange color. So cloudy it's almost white - looks almost exactly like a witbier. Tall, frothy and effervescent offwhite head. Big island of foam and lots of heavy, continuous lacing everywhere.
S: Oooh nice. Candied oranges and lemons. A little grapefruit thrown in. Spicy resinous pine. Nice hop variety. Maybe some bready malt?
T: Not as huge of a hop bomb as I was expecting from the aroma. Citrusy with grapefruit and orange, but much less so. Lots and lots and lots of spicy, piney hops everywhere. Not overly bitter, there is a substantial bready malt here backing it up. Wave of drying bitterness in the finish, along with sort of a salty, spicy pine kicking around. Hints of grapefruit and more pine in the drying, lingering aftertaste.
M: Somewhat heavy, quite bitter and dry on the back end.
O: Nice balanced but very hoppy at the same time. Big, bold hoppy flavors with a strong enough malt base to balance it out (mostly anyway). Only really get substantial bitterness in the bitter drying finish, the rest of the time it's quite well balanced.
