Bottled on 08/08/2014 Poured into a tulip glass form a 22oz. bomber.

A- Nice deep golden/light copper color, with two fingers of white head that slowly dissipated, high degree of clarity.

S- Dank pine, tangerine, lime, pineapple, any detectable alcohol is hidden really well by the massive hops.

T- Big pine note first off, then the citrus and pineapple hits, finishing with a not too dry pine note.

M- Heavier side of medium but very drinkable for the ABV.

O- A fantastic DIPA that I can't believe is available year round. Sure we have our share of things in the MidWest, but not a year round DIPA like this. The only year round DIPA offering like this one we get is Hop Stoopid which funny enough reminds me of this one in flavor. I guess if I could criticize this one I'd have to say that it's a bit too bitter for what I desire in a DIPA but I know this is a West Coast beer so I expect it.

A- a clear lighter amber with a big creamy white head. Head has great retention and leaves nice lacing.

S-aroma is light pine and floral hops with some subtle caramel notes

T- the taste mirrors the aroma. It is a great blend of the pine hops and light bread and caramel notes from the malt. It's not a big hop bomb, but it has considerable depth.

M- has a great full fulling on the palate but not so heavy. Nice clean finish

O- a great, well-crafted DIPA.
