Pours a murky, dark amber with barely one finger of head that quickly settled to a thin film. Just a little lacing is left down the glass. A good hoppy aroma of citrus, pine, and dank green plants. The malt also comes through with caramel aromas. A relatively balanced flavor of hoppy bitterness and caramel sweetness for a DIPA. The use of caramel malt seems to make this beer easier to drink, but also detracts away from the hop flavor and the hop flavor is what people seek in these beers. Nice old school West Coast hop flavor is still present. Finishes with a bitter bite. Full and rich body with good carbonation. The whole package is quite a bit different than the majority of DIPAs that are flooding the market. An enjoyable brew that is quite drinkable.
