Poured a deep orange color with a small white head and good carbonation. Nose is big for an APA. Definitely a West Coast style. Nose is big hops, floral, pine and alcohol on the nose. Taste is caramel malts, big hops, big bigger than alot of West Coast IPAs I have had. Mouthfeel is thick, bitter on the end, chewy and big for an APA. I was full after one pint of this. What a big APA.
