COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Two-row malt, meet Nelson Sauvin and Citra. Fast friends indeed. As sleek as a 9% DIPA can be with the sharp hop tone of lemon peels filled in by orange marmalade and just utter dankness. And you thought those tankers off-shore were just unloading crude... 2 pounds of dry hops per barrel. That’s right.

Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Grapefruit hop aromas. Big grapefruit hop notes dominate with citrusy undercurrents. Good balance with a sturdy malt backbone. Good mouthfeel. Solid.

arminjewell (8478) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Pour on tap at Boneyard, slightly hazy orange-red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of orange, grapefruit, pine into some caramel, toffee notes, slight floral hops as well. Taste was a mix of floral, pine, and orange, some grapefruit in there as well into a hint of spice, lots of caramel, toffee, finishing fairly bitter.

Bottle pour at home, brought this back from San Diego. Nice golden pour, hops and Barley aroma, decent bit and carbonation. The flavors really come out at the end with citrus and good hop flavor not overwhelming. I enjoyed trying this one.

Sample at the DIPA-festival in Hayward. A bit hazy dark golden with a white head. Fresh and hoppy with grapefruit, orange and some biscuits. The finish was bitter and dry.

Man this stuff is killer, just killer. Poured with a huge thick and fluffy cream colored head that lasts forever, lots of lace and a clear amber color. Aroma’s caramel malt and hops. Flavor is the absolute perfect combination of hop flavor bitterness malt sweetness & flavor and carbonic tang. Perfect body. Can drink this beer till the cows come home or you pass out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
