A-Hazy golden yellow with a nice white head that lingers
S-Nice strong west coast IPA aroma, fruit and pine
T-A really nice balance of sweet and bitterness, fruity upfront and a smooth bitterness comes in late
M-Medium mouthfeel and carbonation
O-I enjoyed this beer perhaps it was the Cali nostalgia...

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy honey color with an impressive head; excellent stickage with clumps of lace hanging around

Smell: Lemon and orange citrus and pine, cakey malt base

Taste: Cakey malt lays down the backbone with a quick launch into bitter orange/pine hop flavors; the bitterness builds, after the swallow, bringing a fruity finish with some tropical tones

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A decent DIPA but very much older school compared to where the trendsetters have moved today

Although not bottle dated, this just arrived at my local Whole Foods and I'm assured very fresh. Taste& feel confirms!

Everything about this beer is damn good. Lemon zest, and tropical fruit from the Citra hops show up just enough without making this a fruit juice bomb. The malt lends a bubble gum flavor which is surprising and appreciated. Tropical Fruit / Bubblegum & Pine West coast DIPA.

This beer is dry, crisp and clean. For those of you who have yet to try this very nice specimen of a DIPA, I felt this beer reminded me of a much more clean & refined, more citrussy version of SN Torpedo.

I'd 100% purchse this again when assured fresh.
