Draft - Very hoppy with mild citrus. More heavy and bitter than I prefer. Good strong IPA, but not fantastic.

En kraftfull dipa i den amerikanska skolan - relativt hög fruktighet tillsammans med en bra beska. Extra plus för den sjömansromantiska designen.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Berkeley Bowl. It pours a pretty rich orange/gold color with a creamy off white head. The aroma jumps out with a lot of Cascade character. Florals, grapefruit, orange, a little pine and hints of caramel. The flavor is potent with floral and fruity hops that move into more of a piney bitterness. Caramel is fairly apparent, but subdued enough to not be a major distraction. Alcohol is pretty strong as is the bitterness in the finish. Florals and orange are the major hop flavors here and it strikes me as kind of over simplified. Not bad. Maybe a touch estery, which isn’t so nice. Decent, but a bit over rated IMO.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle without any bottling code. Purchased at Julio’s. Orange / amber color with soapy lacing. Aroma is mostly pine with light notes of floral and grapefruit type hops.
The flavor is herbal pine, caramel malt, very weak traces of citrus. The texture is on the chewy, bready character with a solid pine bitterness. No ABV noticeable and has a lengthy bitter bite. Pretty classic West Coast DIPA. For not knowing the age of the bottle, this is solid.
