Appearance - Light caramel color, good head retention.
Aroma - Strong floral hop aroma.
Taste - Spicy floral hops dominate over a sweet toasty backbone. Slightly citrus.
Mouth feel - Medium to strong body. Mild Carbonation. Definitely a dry bitter aftertaste.
Overall - I love this beer. It's everything great about a westcoast IPA. Strong on the hops aroma and bitterness, yet subtly followed by a mellow sweetness.
Serving type: bottle

Appearance is a clear yellowish copper color. This offering is slightly effervescent with a finger of fluffy head that seemed to linger forever and left rings of lace behind reminiscent of a nitro-tapped beer. The malt profile seems solid, if not remarkable and the hoppiness is good for a single IPA.
This offering does suffer from an odd trace of booziness which makes it less drinkable than some higher ABV DIPAs that I’ve sampled in the past.
Serving type: on-tap
