Pours a semi clear orange, with thick, soft foam.

Smell is west coast, piney resin, grapefruit and just a tad of sweetness, and black tea.

Taste is definitely west coast, but it's grounded by a very solid, slightly sweet malt base that keeps everything together. On top of the base are layers of pine, spruce, resin and citrus. Well balanced.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a very good WC IPA, but one with a bigger maltiness than usual.

22 oz pored into large tulip. No date on bottle.
Must have been old. Skunky taste and smell.
Definitely won't try again.

22oz bottle served in a snifter. I don't see a date.

Pours clear amber golden with a medium to large head and medium carbonation. Smell is fruity and bright at first whiff, and descends into a darker and deeper pine needle bitterness.

Taste is heavier on the piney bitterness, with fruit notes more as an accent. Fruit comes across mostly citrusy -- fair amount of grapefruit rind and a little orange.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and not too sticky. Overall, very solid beer.

Poured from a bomber into a Dogfish Head tulip. No freshness date.

L: Slightly hazed golden pour with big foamy white head. Great lacing.

S: Tropical fruit and grapefruit mingled with evergreen/pine

T/F: Toasted grains and malt sweetnesss. Light citrus, grapefruit and lemon rind... light tropicals and pine. Floral/herbal... medium bodied and sticky. Moderate bitterness.

O: Tastes a bit like an East Coast/West Coast fusion... still has the west coast pine but mixed with tropicals and higher citrus. Solid beer.
