The beer comes in a clear as glass golden amber color with a fluffy tight head. No bubbles rising, no haziness, just a really strangely crystal clear color.

The aroma is incredible punch of sweet tropical and citrus fruit. Dried mango, sweet orange peel, pineapple, juicy sweet peach. A sweet caramel malt as well. In the back, you’re getting the astringency, cat pee, and bit of pine.

The flavor follows with that classic West Coast profile. A ridiculous amount of hop juice in the front. A big punch of tropical and grapefruit, with a substantial sweet caramel malt to back it up and move things around. It attacks then with tons of bitterness of pine needles. It’s really dry.

Having this again, this beer really blows me away after having it the first time in the beginning of the year and having it again towards the end of the year, I’m impressed it lives up as one of the best IPAs around. A wonderful complexity and tons of hops to keep it going. Accessible, it’s so good.

M-well balance for a DIPA just the right amount of hops to malt. Very smooth and silky to mouth with a oily feel
