Pour is honey gold in color, off white fluffy head that has great retention and lacing. Aroma is a tropical fruit bomb: pineapple, orange, grapefruit, peach, mango. It’s very sweet smelling, with a slight bready malt backbone present. Taste follows the nose, but with a much stronger malt presence here: sweet bready malts abound. It’s a great balance of hop and malt. Body is medium, mouthfeel is sticky and lip-smacking good. Exactly what I love in a west-coast DIPA. So good!
