Appearance: clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: dank pine, citrus, caramel, green leafy weeds, earth. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium slightly sticky body, moderate carbonation, off-dry building lingering bitter warming finish. (4/5)

Huge West Coast DIPA, with massive pine and citrus supported by an emphatic caramel that stops short of overwhelming. Well-balanced despite being big, beefy, and slightly old-fashioned. (17/20)
