Pours with a finger of pure white foam. Minimal retention and, at best, likewise lacing. Mostly clear with a tinge of chill haze.
Aroma of overripe fruit (not a bad thing, just creates a more intense experience). Pine and resin. Definitely has a sweet side, assuming form the malt and overripe fruit from the hops. At different times the three notes lent by the hops each take the lead.
Taste is sweet up front. Maltiness in near the finish of biscuit and bread. The hops swoop in quickly: pine and grapefruit mostly. Both lend to the bitter finish. Resin is there but not as prevalent as it was on the nose.
Medium body with an as expected level of carbonation. Dries the palate. Bitter.
Solid offering. The bitter finish may be offsetting for some but I have been around craft beer for 30+ years. It is a DIPA, west coast at that, it should have a bitter finish. Rate the beer on the style, not what you want it to be. Enjoy!
