650 ml bomber from bev4ess. Pours a translucent brass color with a small white head that has minimal retention. The aroma is big and bold with lots of citrusy goodness (oranges in particular) and a touch of pine. The flavor, like the aroma, is a blast of bitter hops featuring oranges, grapefruit and pine. The malt base is almost invisible with just a touch of barley showing through, this makes for a very clean quaff. The palate is silky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long, dry and bitter. Overall: I found the bitterness of this just a bit harsh and over-the-top, otherwise a very decent IPA.

Can. Bronze with a big head which soon dissipated. Quite hoppy with a bitterness that sneaks up on you.. Quite powerful and rather interesting. A new brewery for me.

12oz can. 6/8/16 can date. Appearance: Golden and very clear, with a moderately thick white head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Dank, resinous hop aroma that has that touch of cat pee and ammonia. Also has a bit of candied fruit.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation.
Finish: Strong resinous bitterness, very dry, with a touch of caramel.
Overall: Pretty typical west coast IPA, with a strong, dry, resinous and grassy hoppiness overpowering a light caramel maltiness.
