Kind of a West Coast IPA - huge hop bitterness with resin flavor, not a lot in the malt department. Good fine carbonation. Nice hop aroma. Thick, tight off-white head, that slowly settles. Good drinking beer.

Pours a mostly clear bright yellow golden color with white head. Pine, citrus, light fruits, and some floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with plenty of resinous hops and a nice hop bite. Great example of the style.

Pours a hazy straw color with a good inch of coarse, rocky suds--fantastic head. The aroma smells of grapefruit, lemon, tropical fruit (guava?), and suggestions of bready malt.

The taste is, unsurprisingly, hop forward, but not over the top. The bitterness is resinous, peppery, and only slightly citric. Biscuity malt affords some balance, while vague hints of tropical fruit add a touch of nuance. Medium body and carbonation afford a creamy mouthfeel that complements the taste nicely.

Overall, this is a solid IPA that comes off pretty balanced for what it is. The bitterness is complex enough to be interesting, and the beautiful presentation certainly doesn’t hurt.

Good, might be a bad batch. Had a weird slime on cap.
