A: Pours a lightly hazy medium golden honey in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and moderate burnt orange + medium yellow + dark golden yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense sudsy soapy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a handful of small to medium sized patches of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very slightly mottled very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith + citrus/orange + tropical/mango + herbal + floral hops over the top of moderate aromas of biscuit + bready + toasted + caramel malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness.

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

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

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a crisp refreshing mouthfeel. Enjoyable classic West Coast style IPA with aggressive bitterness. I still really enjoy these and would be happy to find this on draft or in cans the next time I’m grabbing some pizza out.
