Look: straw, pretty clear golden yellow. semi thin white head.

Smell: fresh hops and god's vagina

Taste: best part of this beer by a landslide. how is it 9% ? nobody knows. well, at least i dont.

Feel: perfect mouthfeel for a beer of this style. Medium, maybe slightly medium plus.

Overall: more people should try this beer. It's the best hoppy beer / imperial IPA in CA, and probably whole West Coast.

Thank goodness it was available a few days ago when I visited SD and this brewery for the first time.

This beer is epic. just drink it and you will know.
