golden amber lens with high vividness creating a lather white. outstanding aroma, which floods with citrus shades (grapefruit, orange, shells), pineapple, resin, pine and some candy and cereal. On the palate we have the same citrus shades (tangerine), resinous aroma but that comes with a moderate sweetness of roasted malts. Something spicy. The final drink is long and dry, with a marked bitterness which melts between effervescence and pleasant citrus and resinous flavors that create an unforgettable experience. Medium bodied and very creamy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. No apparent code date. Appearance: Deep golden and clear like apple juice, with a light, thick bubbled off white foam head.
Aroma: Caramel maltiness followed by a strong tropical fruit, pineapple, berry, and resinous hop aroma.
Taste: Rich caramel malt sweetness slowly turning to a resinous, light citrus hop bitterness that intensifies through the swallow. Well balanced malt profile against the bitterness.
Mouthfeel: On the heavier side for an IPA, with a low to moderate carbonation.
Finish: Despite the balance, a strong resinous hop bitterness stands out after the swallow.
Overall: A very well balanced IPA despite the aggressive bitterness. Does a better job than some other west coast IPAs of providing a strong malt backbone that balances it out. Nothing stands out as sharp here, which speaks to the balance

Slightly hazy dark golden color with creamy, off-white head. Aroma has a nice perfume, floral and citrusy. Taste starts really balanced with some clean malts, citrusy hops, a bit of pine resin and finishes with medium hop bitterness and lingering grapefruit and a touch of white grapes. Medium body with nice carbonation and pleasant mouthfeel. It’s a really good IPA overall, classic west coast and well brewed.
