Poured into a shaker glass. Colour is very nice, and very clear. Thin white head, with thin lacing on the glass. Flavour is not too bitter, and very clean. Overall a decent IPA that is worth giving a shot.

Pours amber with a lasting white head. Aroma is dank, herbal and chewy w/ high alpha hops apparent. Flavor is decidedly hop/bitter forward but with solid malt to back it up. Finish lingers into clinging bitterness that sticks around for a while. Tastes like good IPA homebrew. Overall this beer is more of a Imperial American Amber Ale, but still has the hops of a DIPA, the fault I find is the hops are a bit rough and unrefined, malt bill is too dark with too much crystal and specialty malts. Otherwise a well crafted IPA. Thanks to Sean in the Bay Area for the kick down!
