L: Translucent yellow-orange.

S: Big fruit profile. Smells of zesty oranges, kumquat, and pineapple.

T: Hop forward, citrus continues, but there's a noticeablly piney hop feel. Definitely hopped to death, you either love it or hate it. Carmel malt makes a slight peek out from behind the hops. Alcohol present in the finish, but just barely. Finish is semi-dry with that resiny hoppy aftertaste lasting long after your swallow.

F: Carbonation is moderate. Mouthfeel is a little lighter than the aroma leads you to believe it is, but it fits the style.

O: A delightful and somewhat memorable IPA. Reminds me of a less balanced Big Nose, or maybe 90-minute? I'd seek something with a bigger malt backbone in my everyday IPA. But I would gladly drink this over the majority of the swill out there. Very good, aroma is there and the West Coast pine is killing it.

Look is amazing. Smell is attractive. Initial taste is of kumquats and figs. Pretty good overall taste but noticeable alcohol taste.

Thanks to bigdonk
