On tap at Bistro DIPA Fest. Hazy orange in color with a small white head. Big citrusy aroma with orange and grapefruit and some malty sweetness. The flavor has a sweet malt base with orange juice, grapefruit rind, and herbal notes. Mildly acrid on the mouthfeel with medium-full body and good hop resins. A solid DIPA but didnít really stand out at the Fest.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
15 ounce sample on tap at Preserve in Winters, CA. Intensely hoppy aroma with a good deal of citrus orangey character. Some mango and passionfruit are also in there. I donít get much onion aroma, which is what I initially remember about the aroma of this beer when I first had it a couple months ago. Super quaffable. Moderately hazy, unfiltered orangey body with a smallish, quickly dissipating whitish head. Starts with lots of citrus orange hops, before this becomes very resinous with some onion flavors in the middle. Intensely bitter and super grapefruity towards the finish. Light mango, but definitely super harsh with the bitterness. Would prefer more balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a growler. This IIPA pours a hazy golden orange with a small sized white head and minimal lacing. Like many growlers I think some carbonation was gone. The nose shows citrus and tropical fruit. Medium in body and slick in mouthfeel. Flavor is potent, with a lot of malts and hops, dominated by citrus and pine. The finish is dry and nicely bitter. Decently crafted and good drinking Imperial IPA.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
