Had a few mason jars of this at my hotel in Chicago because I missed a flight. From notes.

A - Copper pour with strong carbonation and bright. Two fingers of fluffy white head with good lace and a good finger of retention.

S - West coast pine, prickly pineapple core. Hops!

T - Generous malt backbone with some sweetness, pine, and grapefruit.

M - Strong carbonation, light body was a bit odd, and a good bitterness.

O/D - Tamer than I expected, but highly drinkable as proven by the fact that I had 3 of these in one sitting. A good hop dose that wasn't over the top and a bit on the safe side for a California IPA. All things considered, I enjoyed this one.

The color of the brew is copper with orange hues very slight trace of head which covers the the glass when agitated. The nose has elements of grapefruit, piney hops, and cinnamon/carmel. The taste is malt up front with a nice balanced hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is nicely carbonated upfront followed by nice syrupy viscousness.
