Was so excited to open this from a recent shipment of west coast offerings that I received. It pours a orange copper hue with a small white head that leaves decent lacing and film and has beautiful slick legs. The nose is hoppy with lots of pine, floral, and grapefruit notes as well as a nice malty presence. Very balanced and fresh smelling. The mouthfeel is super smooth and very pleasantly sticky. Carbonation level is just right. The flavor is an incredible balance of fresh west coast hops and malt sweetness. Nicely bitter but very balanced and easy to drink. Abv is almost completely hidden. This is one of the finest dipas that I have ever had. Hope to get some more down the road. Well done!

This beer appears golden with a orange hue. The head was white and minimal. As I twirl the beer around the pint glass, the lacing and legs look slick. Some of the lacing remains around the glass as the beer disappears. The head has settled around the ring. This beer has a gorgeous look about it.

The smell is fruity, sweet, floral, and piney, but not overpowering. It smells like juicy fruit with over ripe grapefruit.

The taste is extremely balanced and has tremendous flavor. Fruity, piney, sweet, and goodness. It has a candy finish. This beer has a world class taste.

The mouthfeel is outstanding. It has just the right amount of carbonation and body. The mouthfeel is great.

This is one of the better balanced DIPAs around. There isn't one characteristic that stands out. Everything blends well to make a definite world class beer.
