Cloudy in color
white head
dirty amber
lots of sediment in the last pour

The taste of this beer reminds me of Ballast point big eye if it were completely unfiltered. Not bad but leaves something to be desired.

Not too bitter with a really nice hop profile. So delicious and a good sweetness. Clean finish. Not too malty but still a malt balance. Delicious

Maybe I'm homesick, but just plain enjoyed when back on home turf during the holidays. A pure Westy IPA, with everything just clicking together.

Opened bomber that had NOT been agitated and lost about 2-3 inches of beer as it spewed from the top with torrential carbonation. When I tried to pour into pint glass very carefully, I received one inch of beer and the rest of the glass was a hard, tan head that looked like a solid iceberg. Trust me, I know how to pour a beer and this one was impossible(old, bad?, I do not know. Taste is not bad but not as hoppy as I would expect after seeing the 60 IBU note. Lots of citrus and orange/tangerine. Trust me, let the head die down before drinking, the head is so bitter.................Overall, do not know if I got a bad or old bottle, but this was not impressive at all. I can still taste the horribly bitterness from the head!!Also, carbonation is way too much !!!!
