On tap at Bobby G’s. Pours a copper with a one finger head that has good retention and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Aroma is huge with grapefruit, orange, and pineapple. No trace of malt in the nose. Taste is sweet grapefruit going into some orange peel and light caramel with some pineapple. Light bitterness. No trace of alcohol. Medium body. Light carbonation. Great beer.

On tap at Lagunitas during SF Beer Week, what a week! It pours crystal clear copper with thin white head. The aroma offer up thick malt sweetened citrus like tangelo, grapefruit and a bit of mango blending into some spicy hops. Behind those notes are some resiny hops murmuring about. The taste has lots of spicy hops creating some fresh kitty liter box notes. The hops then move up in bitterness and become resiny with bitter pine hop notes to midway and into the finish. Very tasty IIPA that is just too easy going down. Damn good.

This is another awesome IPA from these guys! Loved this beer! If you are going for an IPA with some hop presence these guys do such a great job.

On tap at 540 Club during SF beerweek. Massive grapefruit explodes out of the glass. Pours a clear copper with white head that leaves quickly but retains a nice white covering. Nice lacing down the glass as well. Bitterness and citrus dominate the palate. Bitterness shines through on the finish, although the malt is strongly in support. Mouth feel is full and chewy, alcohol covers the tongue and provides nice warmth.

On Tap at Toronado in SFO. Pours orange, slight head, nice hop aroma, hop bitterness, touch of sweetness. Nice beer, not spectacular.

A- Pours a ruddy copper hue with little to no head. S- Deep citrusey scents, hints of breadiness. T- A barrage of citrusey hops, grapefruit, hints of grassiness, grainy notes. M- Medium bodied with medium carbonation. D- This is an awesome DIPA that i’ve had the pleasure of trying twice so far and will be sure to repeat.

On tap at the hopyard. It pours golden orange with a small white head. The aroma is really nice and grassy, piney, tropical, citrus. The flavor is sweet and potently hoppy with some light caramel and citrus, grass, pine. Surprisingly drinkable despite the ibu’s. There’s some serious new west coast IIPA’s coming down the pike!
