Poured into a glass, a bright clear goldenrod, big marshmallow fluff head. Smells of pine woods in the rain. Hoppy, resinous, bitter taste with citrus. Slippery feel. Strong presence, this beer won’t play second banana. Drink it last.

Appearance – Clear, deep yellow body with a thin layer of head.

Aroma – Citrus and a little floral, with some light malts evident.

Taste – Pine at the fore, pine down the middle, and pine in the finish. Did I mention the pine?

Mouthfeel – Oily and coats the tongue, pretty good.

Overall – Pretty good even if a bit one-dimensional.

12 oz. Can

A bright and peachy look, amber and gold color with a low-lying white foam cap, spreads out fast, decent coverage with a bit of lacing.

The scent of dense hop oils, hop resin, pine, evergreen needles, sweet and grainy amber malt pops right out. Slightly boozy, hot citrus and sweet pineapple round it out.

The flavor is all about the resinous, oily, piney side of the hops. Tart, tangy, earthy, hop oils and plenty of bitterness. An oily, medium bodied feel and texture. The malt is pretty hefty with signs of summer field grains, amber sweetness and crispy edges. The 9.2 % abv is pretty boozy with a heat tingle. Citrus rind and grassy earthy undertones finish it off. I like the grassy and green hop flavor that lingers.

A really nice West coast beastie ipa. Serious bitter punch.

3 week old can.

This one pours a slightly hazy golden orange, with a foamy and creamy looking head, and a lot of lacing.

This one smells absolutely fantastic, with rich and resinous pine, candied grapefruit, fresh picked flowers, cut grass, tangerine, and pineapple.

This beer absolutely floored me. It's everything I want in a double IPA. Heavy and soft at the same time, with a resinous and sizzling piney bitterness, balanced by a huge juicy hop explosion- all sorts of grapefruit, pineapple, and tangerine, with a herbal character that was unexpected as well. There's just a touch of malt to prop everything up.

The body on this is perfect, crisp, but surprisingly creamy, with a soft level of carbonation. There's absolutely no booziness here, I don't know how they did it.

This feels like a perfect hybrid of each coast's style of IPA here. I can't find much wrong with this one.

Incredibly smooth for DIPA. Full flavor, yet lacks any overly bitter bite in the beginning, middle or end, or afterward. Couldn't feel the higher alcohol content, which is unusual for a DIPA. Bought it in Denver, and am pining for it in NJ. Probably the best DIPA I've had in many years.
