Relatively mild, malty double IPA. Hops are mostly citrus, but quite a bit more restrained than I would prefer. Solid mouthfeel, otherwise just OK.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
16oz. can. Bright golden straw color with a brilliant white head and ring of lace. Upfront dank oily hop nose of tropics and citrus in equal balance. What really makes this good is how well the flavors, malts and bitterness blend. Grapefruit citrus, tropical, honey, complex. Good palate. Finishes with some alcohol burn. Will seek and buy more.

16 oz can.
Slightly hazy pale golden, two finger, sticky, lasting, pale white head.
Aroma is dank and citrusy, maybe a little tropical notes.
Flavor is similar to the aroma, floral, citrus, tiny bit of pine, and a soft honey sweetness. Nicely balanced.

Draft. Goldenrod in hue with the softest of hazes. The head is a cotton blanket, swaddling the liquid below with stick white foam. Pungent, smell-it-from-a-foot-away hop aroma. I get dank, sticky weed, lime peel, lemongrass, white grapefruit, onion, garlic and bread crust. The flavor adds a scoop of honey to this bouquet, balancing the intense hop character. It almost seems sweet up front, in fact. Soft tropical notes are added to the mix before the finish, where mild bitterness grips the tongue with orange peel fingers. The body is a creamy medium; the carbonation is soft and pleasant. Very tasty DIPA.

On tap at Sprenger’s, Santa Rosa. Pours pale yellow with a small head. Aroma is tropical fruits, and very dank hops. Flavor is similar. Sweet malts, tropical fruits. Pretty nice actually. Bitter finish, but not over the top.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light yellow, strong hoppy aroma. To me, not terribly well balanced, as there’s barely any detectable maltiness. Bitterness from the hops really lingers.
