12oz bottle with pry-off cap poured into a snifter bottled on 12/02/2014

Appearance: Pours a clear, golden amber with 1 finger of white head

Smell: Citrus hops with an underlying earthy pine note

Taste: Like chewing on hop flowers, so much citrus, lemon zest, pine needles, and all flavors from the hop spectrum without a palate wrecking bitterness

Mouthfeel: Medium and crisp

Overall: Just brilliant. Hits the nail on the head for the flavor I want in a DIPA. Its chock full of flavor without a crazy bitterness to overwhelm. Very bright in flavor and dry in its finish.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look- Slightly dark for a West Coast DIPA, copper colored beer with good lacing.

Smell- Wonderfully pungent and dank hop scent.

Taste- Heady tropical fruits... mango, pineapple, melon, a hint of pine... there is a lot going on here but it's not convoluted. Very subtle, toasty malt structure.

Feel- Crisp, complex but not overwhelming.

Overall- Great change of pace DIPA. Not what I usually reach for due to price constraints, but this beer is the real deal.

A - Pours a clear golden orange with a two-finger white foamy head. Tons of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma of sweet oranges and piney hops.

T - The flavor is juicy oranges, pineapple, lemon, sweet malts, and strong piney hops. The piney hops produce a good amount of bitterness in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. The finish is sticky and somewhat dry.

O - Big piney hops mixed with juicy tropical flavors make this a top shelf DIPA.
