The beer comes in a peach/orange color. The aroma is citrus fruits and malt. The taste is delicious citrus fruits with a medium malt backbone. A great example of a west coast IPA

22 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

Appearance: pours pale gold with a thin white head.

Smell: tons of tropical fruit - papaya, mango - along with some grapefruit. No real malt presence. Hop intensity rivals many DIPAs.

Taste: similar to the smell but toned down a notch. Some more pine comes through here along with the tropical/citrus hop presence. Just a touch of biscuity malt flavor. No alcohol heat. Moderate battering hops on the finish.

Mouthfeel: body is medium to light. Healthy carbonation. Quite smooth and refreshing.

Overall: top-notch IPA in the aroma department. Flavor wise not quite at the level of the best examples of the style but still a very good offering overall.
