3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Altamont Beer Works. Clear golden orange pour with white foam. Very sticky, dank hop nose. A lot of grapefruit, orange, honey, and pine. A bit of weed, some body odor funk, blue cheese, and herbs...in a good way. Flavor has a hint of sweet orange and peach, but otherwise there is just a ton of pine. Some juicy, tart grapefruit and a bit of funky herbs and what I can only describe as blue cheese. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2014 On tap, 20 oz pour at Counter Burger in Fremont, CA. Tight head, low carbonation. Very hoppy as to be expected. Clean, citrus taste; no malt at all. At 9% ABV this packs a wallop, but is in no way taste tainted by the high alcoholic content. Highly recommended, but as only available on draft you will have to search for this.

On tap @ 10 East -
After having their Ganja Juice IIPA, this was right behind it and for me a better attempt at an IIPA. Definitely more hop-foward with a clean malt bill, not overly sweet in any way. Grapefruit rind in both the aroma and palate. A kiss of caramel sweetness to keep it from being hop tea. Perhaps a bit one-dimensional but I hella liked it. There. Since I’m from California and we all say "hella"...I guess I had to use it here.
