Pours a half finger of head on a hazy straw colored body. The aroma is malty and grapefruit. The taste is an interesting, but good mixture of pineapple, pine and grapefruit bitterness. It has a long strong bitter finish. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. It’s a pretty great IPA.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2014
Sample at Mikkeller Bar SF. Amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and roast malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of hops, grapefruit and sweet malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

A- pours a deep orangey hue with a chunky, off white head. S- hop forward, pine, sweet malty scent T - lots of pine up front rounded out by caramel notes and a lingering residual bitterness. M - fairly thick and slightly less carbonated than I would have liked. D - very impressive brew from a brewery that is new to me. Will definitely have to seek out more of their beer.

>> Thanks brokensail for the share. Clear golden orange pour, good foam. Nose is sticky candies, vegetal, sweet potatoes. Taste is dusty, papery, gristy grain and whole wheat bread crust. Harsh palate, cracker, super dry papery. Eh.

>!< paper, dusty, vegetal, overly dry

mcberko (5931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at Zeitgeist, pours a hazy golden with a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma brings out notes of pine, floral hops, and crackery, biscuity malt. Flavour is very fruity and piney, with notes of light fruity notes, piney and floral hops, and some zesty notes. Wonderfully balanced and brewed IIPA, with a nice astringent, zesty finish. Excellent IIPA.

On tap @ City Beer. Orange pour with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, orange, and pine hops. Some sweet caramel, a touch of pineapple, and a hint of onion. Flavor is fairly bitter with some sweet caramel notes throughout. A lot of grapefruit and orange. Fairly pine forward, light onion, and hints of tropical fruit.

On tap at City Beer. Wow. This was very impressive. It pours a golden color with a creamy white head. The aroma is incredible with huge tropical fruit, gooseberries, mango, pineapple and grapefruit. The flavor is full and creamy with grapefruit and pine with some white grape and a bit of diesel bitterness in the finish. Very bitter in fact. Great full body without a hint of caramel sweetness. This one is right up my alley except for the punishing bitter finish. They could have gone a little more subtle there. Still awesome though.
