On tap on the fair beaches of San Diego.; into a pint glass.
Appearance - orange with a syrup/honey hue. Decent white head and lacing.
Smell - hop forward indeed, but didn't knock my socks off...
Taste - a bit disappointing (though I admit to having this after a Green Flash Palate Wrecker)! One sided, bland (relatively speaking) with little to no complexity.
Feel - love the aggressive bitterness, but would be great with some creativity/complexity.
Overall - decent west coast DIPA, but much better options.
