On Tap at Tap 25. I’m growing very fond of this brewery. I don’t think I’ve every had a bad beer by them. This one pours a clear gold with an off white head. The aroma is stanky and spicy with mild caramel and tropical fruit sweetness. The flavor is dank, spicy onion, only a hint of caramel on a full, oily palate. Nice finish. Great mouthfeel. A touch more aroma would have put this over the top.

Flaske: Købt på en tankstation udenfor Yosemite. Udelukkende grundet navnet på bryggeriet. Meget positivt overrasket. Orange let uklar. Fantastisk duft af frisk humle, let citrus mango og en smule malt. Smagen er næsten uden bitterhed men masser af juicy humle, god alkohol til at bakke resten af øllen op. Lækker øl.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a bright clear amber gold. Thin film off white.
Aroma: Sweet malt, tropical fruit.
Taste: Caramel like malt, fruit cocktail and a bombardment of bitter hops. 100 ibu style.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied. Average carbonation.
Overall: This is most certainly 100 IBUS. Kind of reminds me of Green Flash Palate Wrecker. This was too malty for my liking, but I completely understand why it had to have the malt bill it did. I look forward to trying more beers from Dust Bowl.

From a bomber. Bright citrus and resin. Wheat cracker malt in moderate low amounts. Clear orange with full white head. High bitterness marries well with moderate malt and overt pine and citrus hops.

Bottle shared by Bytemesis! Strong fruity nose with lots of lemon and citrus. a dry pithy bitterness with not much malt presence. This is definitely for the hop focused, no malt, no messing around DIPA lover. enjoyable.

Bottle, picked up at Wine Club on Nolen’s recommendation, and shared at the Homer "welcome to California" tasting. Pours crystal clear orange with a medium creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates leaving nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite dank, lots of grapefruit, pine, wet leaves, a bit of a pot note. Flavor has little sweetness, quite dry and light plus bitter, fruity, citrus and dankness. Medium body. Nice beer coming just short of world class.

On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a clear yellow amber color. Easy going hop flavors though noticeable sharp alcohol flavors.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bold hops out of the bottle with even bolder, sweet warm malt taste by the time I drank it from the glass. Medium body, medium bitter, medium gold, medium off-white head and mediocre taste. Grapefruit, caramel and bread malty sweet is my experience. Even ice cold this was a little more cloying than I want from an Imperial. One nice aspect is the very short afterward with this beer and just minutes after my last swallow, there is no bitter or lingering sensation. I will not revisit this particular brew.

A nice representation of the DIPA. Big malt hop and tropical notes. Could be a bit thicker.

I’ve had this beer on tap locally here in Sacramento, and I regularly get it in bottles. It’s a heavy Imperial IPA with a solid citrusy flavor, which is a tribute to the vast array of citrus grown in the region. It’s got low carbonation, so there’s no bite, and despite clocking in at 11% ABV it’s not boozy at all. It pours clear, and is almost amber in color. It’s smooth but mouthfeel is almost light for such a powerhouse of flavor. Very complex notes throughout, from start to finish. And when you’re done, you’ll realize you just got back-doored by The Rapist.
