I'm not a hophead by any means, but this beer is hop heaven.
2 finger, eggshell white, soapy head on a bright, golden body.
Super resinous, pine, grapefruit, a bit of earth. Smells amazing.
A minuscule amount of grapefruit and pine, and a powerful, tastebud-wrecking shot of hoppy bitterness. Not balanced in any way, shape, or form in a good way.
Clean, dry, astringent.
Judging this beer simply as it's trying to be, it's perfect. It is the quintessential West Coast, American IPA. Drinkability is great. Highly recommended.
