3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
NorCal Feb ’08 - One of the more rare beer styles found in a can. Suprising too because you’d think that maybe a can might preserve it’s contents a bit better than a glass bottle. Either way, this beer was decent. The beer is copper in color with a nice two finger thick white head. Aroma was very tropical-like, that shifted gears from time to time with a piney hop attack. Malts were sweet, peppery with an unerlying nail polish like aroma ot the whole beer. Flavor was sweet, with a nice citrus hop character to it. No way I’d consider this a double IPA. IPA at best and it’d be a nice one. But a DIPA? Uh-uh.

Waiting for this beer to be added...had on honeymoon 10/06. Pours out a nice copper color with a moderate white head. Floral/citrus hops on the aroma. Flavor is nice and balanced mostly citrus hops, some sweet malt balance. Dry alcohol on the finish. Overall enjoyable, but maybe more so because of the setting.

Copper pour with a soapy white head. Awesome fresh hop aroma, Peaches, grapefruit, tropical fruits. The flavour has much of the same elements quite tasty, the alcohol is undetectable but for a double IPA I was expecting more of a hop kick. Tasty just the same but more of an IPA.
