L: Hazy, translucent pale yellow/straw, with a big creamy white head that dies down about half a finger. Quite a bit of streaky lacing.

S: Juicy tangerine and yellow grapefruit along with some light pineapple, mango, and white peach notes. There's also a big catty dankness with some pine. Smells something like Enjoy By but less pungently dank with a more subtle emphasis on tropical fruit.

T: Juicy orange, peach, and pineapple upfront; followed by a snappy transition to pine and dankness. A firm crackery malt holds it up, leaning towards dough and white bread, never growing sweet with alcohol well hidden. There's a firm pop of pine sap on the back end, before closing it with lingering bitter grapefruit pith and peel.

F: The heavier side of medium, well rounded and slightly creamy, with a moderate carbonation that pushes it gently.

O: Despite the appearance and hops, this is more West Coast style than New England, but fantastically so. This is like all the West Coast hoppy flavors so well done.

Pale gold with just a faint haze, fat white head, thick lace behind... Aromas of citrus pine, bold and forward, preview the bitterness bomb that follows... Brewed with Citra, Nelson Sauvin, and Galaxy hops... tongue-gripping pine bitterness, mild fruit sugars in the background... Medium body, lean and taut, modest carbonation, a little bit of stick and tack; drying finish... A lot I like about this beer... From their April 22nd can release...

Poured from a 16oz can into a speiglau IPA glass.

The look is a pale orange and a thin dense head.

Aroma is astrigent lemon with a big herbal hop hit at the end.

Taste is a lot more of that herbal bitter hop with a little pine and a big mellow orange hit at the end.

Absolutely delicious. Kinda old school big hop DIPA, and it's amazing.
