Pours a clear copper colored body with a tall ivory head and really sticky lacing, very nice looking beer.
The smell has a ton of grapefruit, caramel malt and very pungent smelling hop 'dankness'
The hop bitterness rules this castle of flavor, citrus and grapefruit give a juicy kick. This is backed by a decent malt sweetness. wow!
The feel is a bit oily from the hop resins, but the high co2 fixes this and makes for a perfect mouthfeel.
The definative west coast DIPA for a reason. Perfect example of flavor, nose and feel.(that is if a hop bomb is what you crave as opposed to the more balanced examples of the style.)
