On tap at Hopyard San Ramon 04/12/10. Served in a standard pint glass.

Somewhat deep but clear orange amber in color. Not much of a head to speak of.

Aroma yields a great balance of leafy bitter hop pungency and sweet citrus notes. That's about all I'm getting but what else do you need in this style really?

Citrus flavors are not as strong as on the the aroma but still pleasant. There's also a fairly prominent residual dry bitterness on the aftertaste which is really enjoyable in my opinion. My one small gripe against this beer is that I'd like a little more complexity mid sip, there's citrus on the entry and bitterness on the finish but not much to bridge the two.

Carbonation is mild and the finish is dry. Easy drinking for the style, don't know the ABV but I'm assuming this in the 8% range and the alcohol is nice and subtle.

Ovrall the important pieces are essentially all in place for a solid West Coast DIPA. A very good beer I'll revisit when it shows up again even with all the great options available. Impressive.
