A: Pours a crystal clear medium to dark honey in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and moderate dark golden yellow + burnt orange + amber colored highlights. The beer has as three finger tall dense sudsy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a medium sized patch of medium thick film covering approximately 35% of the surface of the beer surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith + herbal + pine hops over the top of moderate aromas of toasted + caramel + bready malts with a moderate amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of toasted + caramel + bready malts with a moderate amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of citrus/grapefruit pith + herbal + pine hops which impart a moderate amount of lingering aggressive bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp initially with a moderate amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a refreshingly crisp + dry mouthfeel. Enjoyable classic C-hopped West Coast IPA with aggressive bitterness - exactly what I was in the mood for this evening. Nice throwback to the West Coast IPAs of the earlier 2000s.
