4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft during SF Beer Week. Fresh hop aromas and flavors, filled with herbs, citrus and florals. The balance was the most impressive part. Big, yet balanced. Subtle, yet bold. Great, easy drinking texture. Needed to warm a bit to fully express itself. Worth the hour wait.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is all fruity hops. Lots of bright citrus but with a well balanced tropical fruit and peach note. There is no malt aroma or alcohol in the nose. Just bright, clean hops. This beer isn’t pretty. It’s not at Heady Topper levels but it is very cloudy - you can tell through the bottle. Pours orange with a big white head that has nice retention and good lacing. A slight, sweet malt note up front but then the flavor is all hops just like the aroma. Lots of fruit in the hop profile - citrus, tropical fruit and peach. A touch of a melon character a well. Nice clean but assertive bitterness. Dry, bitter finish with a hint of alcohol spice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, approaching medium light. Medium carbonation with very low astringency, just a bit of hop astringency. Medium low alcohol warmth. Overall this is a really nice, bright, fruity DIPA. Clean alcohol and malt notes that don’t distract from the hops. I don’t know that this is really worth the lengths people go through though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
