4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a tulip from a bomber from Beer Revolution in Oakland (thanks Aaron!). Pours clear golden orange. Smells like citrus, pine, and caramel. Tastes like a typical but great DIPA - grapefruit, orange and sweet caramel while drinking with a strong pine, hoppy, bitter finish. Great DIPA, very bitter but also has a smooth taste. If you like DIPAs give this one a try - I loved it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap: orange pour with a thin ring of white foam. Aroma is hoppy with a tropical citrus and pine. Flavor is mildly sticky sweet caramel, pine resin, and very light citrus. Decent flavor, but nothing stands out and it is lacking in carbonation. Easy drinking for a big beer.

Fantastic! No heat from a 10%’er. Lots of hops, I repeat, LOTS of hops.

If you want a smoother hoppier beer this would be a good entry to the double IPAs. With an amber tint it delights the eye although the flavor is somewhat muted compared to others. Still very good.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of orange and pine notes from the hops as well as a hint of biscuit malt. The flavor is fairly bitter with some resinous pine and orange notes. The alcohol is also fairly noticeable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

We really did not like this beer compared to other Manzanita offerings. Cloying in a bad way, unbalanced , some hoppy beers leave a qualitative lingering taste, this leave a lingering taste that is not qualitative. Could have been a bad batch because Manzanita usually does a great job.
