3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a translucent light copper color with a small white head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is big and bold with oranges, clementines and grapefruit. The flavor is not nearly as citrusy as the nose would suggest, there is a good dose of pine in the forefront, with moderate oranges and grapefruit filling in the back end. The malt base was unremarkable from a flavor standpoint. Palate is full and silky with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering bitter grapefruit and pine. Overall: The nose is first-rate, but the piney aspect of the flavor did not really grab me. The bitterness comes across as a bit harsh, that aside its a nice little DIPA.

Pours hazy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape, herbal and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, malty, citrus and grape finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Dorado limpio y espuma blanca compacta. Aromas dulce de mermelada de melocotón con pino y menta. Cuerpo medio, sedoso, trago limpio con sabor meloso, afrutado y final de amargor intenso, que roza la astringencia, seco y persistente.

This one is worth the price. Excellent malt/hop balance, great mouthfeel, solid finish. A good one to crack open after work and nurse during a game.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25th May 2015: on tap in the Yard House, Irvine. Yet another hop bomb, this light amber one had a white head and an aroma of citrusy fruits dragged through the dirt. Bitter and hop laden from the first sip to the last, could have been any number of West Coast breweries DIPA (Hanger 24 for instance). Decent and a delight for any hop lover.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
102 IBU? Still fairly smooth, deep golden body with a nice silly white head. Hops rule both the aroma and taste (as expected), gives a nice pleasant glow. Lingering hoppiness, although not as much as you’d think

Draught at Yard House in Waikiki. Incredible punch of citrus hop with a lot of malt behind it. Packs a massive punch.

Really nice hoppy pine resin and citrus just balanced with the malt. Medium light body. This hit the spot just right and really refreshing and not overly slick for a dipa. Just the right amount of bitterness for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank this bomber after an arduous day of installing shelving. Gawd my arms R sore. This one pours orangy amber. Small hard leaves some lacing. Slight pine and citrus wrapped in a slightly sweet and sticky body. Moderate carb keeps it light.
