Appearance: Bright yellow glass holds a fluffy white finger of foam that lasts and laces.

Smell: Rich hops speak west coast grapefruit, pine tar, and floral notes with little hints of sugary base.

Taste: Generally clean, hop flavors slowly build up to a satisfying bitter that keeps a lot of the citric fruity notes that I really like. The base is a bit of sugar cookie dough that lets the hops do their thing.

Mouthfeel: Prickly carbonation in a medium heavy glass that is a bit oily.

Overall: Solid IPA! Great west coast citric flavor, nothing distracting from the full hop flavor that manages to bring volume without going bitter or burning. A great slow sipper with a lot of bang for the buck.

Amazing bouquet- hoppy and citrus. Great color and head. Not enough citrus in the taste, though. It definitely needed more for balance. Mouthfeel is heavy; could be brighter. Overall, this beer was very drinkable but the taste was not citrusy enough for what I believe is required of an exceptional IPA. Which is ironic because I got those notes in the smell which was perfect.
