3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, from BevMo in Solana Beach. Figured Id give this relatively new brewery a go. Hazy dark amber color with a fat rocky white head. Great appearance. Nose is grapefruit, gingerbread and hops with clove. Flavor leans way malty and overwhelms the hop character. High alcohol kind of masks everything and throws it off balance. A good first go, but it needs some fine tuning.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, mango, passionfruit, orange peel, sweet pale malts and some pine. Taste is a big burst of tropical fruits, passionfruit, papaya, sweet caramel malts, light pine and a nice medium dry finish. Great balance with a smooth bitterness and flavor... Love this ipa!

Bottle to tulip
Spruce, lime, booze, grapefruit, pepper, and pine. Clear amber with loads of effervescence and a 1 cm frothy off white head. Taste is lemon, spruce, grapefruit, a touch of papaya and then loads of long lasting bitterness.

Very rich amber pour with a foamy off white head. Tons of lacing. Aroma of pears and pine. Has a nice bitterness and hides the abv well with bitter hoppy goodness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite enjoyable. Pours a light orangey gold with a huge off white head. There is not very much lacing. The aroma is fresh, fruity, a bit floral, citrusy and a bit spicy. Nice and heavy hops that over balance malts. Light caramel, grass, floral and spicy notes. Crisp, resinous, heavy body. Good brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear pale amber with two fat fingers of fluffy off-white head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is grainy caramel, grapefruit, pine resin, some stone fruit and light floral. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Medium to heavy body, moderate carbonation, slightly syrupy and oily texture, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Well, it’s maltier than I’d prefer, but I can’t really call it “malt-forward” like so many other DIPA’s tend to be. I’d call it balanced and even-handed... but I’d still prefer more hop-forward. Good, but short of great. (15/20)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bomber pours a pale amber color with a generous white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and grapefruit with some mild caramel and grainy notes. Taste is a bold grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a light caramel and fruity sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation that pleases the palate. Overall, this brew is not quite there with the better DIPA’s, but still is a good one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Big and ruddy, with a thick rusty orange hue and a towering foam head. The aroma is thick with sap, wet and mossy bark, and bitter hops. The beer drinks with the same mushy, northwestern forest flavors. (#5952, 3/30/2015)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours a hazy orange with a creamy head and leaves nice lacing. On the nose there's pine, apricots, citrus and a subtle honey sweetness. Body is medium and carbonation is on the lower end of the scale. Taste is quite aggressive. Heaps of citrus, tang, apricots, grass. Subtle malt sweetness also comes through as well. Really liked this one!
