look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

16oz can 3/28 date. Pours a deep caramel like old school west then has new school haze. Smell is nice caramel sweetness sap like hops. Frim bitternss but little too sweet and come over muddled. This seems like a west coast IPA trying to be NEIPA but does not have the softness of NEIPA nor the dry clean bite of west coast. I

16 oz can into IPA glass. Dated 3/28.19.
Look is fairly cloudy golden orange. Smell is light tropical fruit. Taste follows nose with light fruit on top then dank and piney grapefruit and a little alcohol at end. Feel is light to medium. Overall a nice DIPA that I would drink again.

Canned 1/17/19
Big creamy pillowy head, good retention and lacing, mostly clear slight chill hazed light pale golden color

Nose nice Cascadian base hops, grassy floral citrus, as well as tropical fruits and citrus, orange, mango notes, hint grapefruit, little dank pine too detracted from the rest

Taste mild sweet malts, creamy fluffy, big hops again, but initially dank musty resin, cat pee, mild citrus and mango as will, grapefruit pith, fair bitterness and sweetness with good balance, drier finish

Mouth is med bod, little soft creamy, decent creamy carb

Overall not bad expect the dank musty cat pee from the Simcoe I'm guessing

Pours a mostly clear honeyed golden copper with ~1 finger of pillowy white foam; solid retention with some great lasting lacing patterns maintaining around the glass.

Aroma showcases a bright, dense hop-malt balance, with the malt coming upfront while a herbal hop presence stands firmly in the background alongside well-integrated citrus notes.

Taste of dank hops meshed with honeyed grapefruit and a flaky malt presence; a fruity, earthy, malty sweetness builds throughout the profile; pretty lasting, easy finish of saturated, sticky sweetness balanced nicely by a drying malt presence.

Mouthfeel glides across the palate with an easygoing medium body and balanced carbonation, with a minimal hop bite lingering in the background and a faint juiciness; sticky, and yet ultimately clean finish.

A bit surprised with the West Coast elements of this one, but they were executed well alongside the juicier elements of your usual NEIPA. A really easy-drinking hybrid kind of IPA at 9%, and with a unique character of hoppy sweetness that has it standing out similar to how a triple IPA might.

Had on tap. Pours clear, gold in color, with 1/4 inch head. Taste is pine grapefruit, wet hops, and citrus rind. Medium-light bodied, slightly bitter and tasty. Nice easy sipper. There are imperial IPAs I prefer more, but this one is solid.
